32-122.05. Certification of alarm businesses; application; fingerprinting; fee; renewal
A. Beginning May 1, 2013, the board shall issue certificates to alarm businesses and alarm agents. Beginning October 1, 2013, a person shall not operate an alarm business unless the person obtains an alarm business certificate from the board. A separate certificate is required for each business name under which an alarm business conducts business or advertises except that one certificate may be used for two businesses with the same ownership. To obtain an alarm business certificate, each controlling person of the alarm business shall submit a completed fingerprint card and a fingerprint background check fee to the board. On receipt of the application and each year thereafter on the anniversary of the initial certification for as long as the alarm business is certified, the board shall submit the fingerprints of each controlling person to the department of public safety for the purpose of obtaining a state and federal criminal records check pursuant to section 41-1750 and Public Law 92-544. The department of public safety may exchange this fingerprint data with the federal bureau of investigation. Each controlling person of the alarm business shall submit a fingerprint background check fee to the board annually on the anniversary of the initial certification of the alarm business. The board shall keep and maintain the fingerprint card for as long as the person is the controlling person of the alarm business. All alarm business certificates issued pursuant to this article are valid for two years from the date of issuance.
B. A person shall submit an application for an alarm business certificate or renewal of the certificate to the board. The application shall include:

If one or more of the partners, members or shareholders of the applicant is a corporation or other legal entity, the provisions of this subsection relating to information required of a corporation apply.
2. If the applicant is a corporation, general or limited partnership, limited liability company or other legal entity, designation of one of its designated controlling persons to have full authority and act as principal. The designated person shall complete and sign all application forms required of an individual alarm agent applicant under this article. The applicant shall also provide a copy of the corporation, partnership or limited liability company formation documents.

C. In addition to the application requirements prescribed in subsection B of this section, an applicant for an alarm business certificate shall pay a fee as determined by the board.
D. An applicant for an alarm business certificate or an applicant for a renewal of an alarm business certificate shall notify the board, in writing, of any change in the information contained in the certificate application or renewal application. The applicant shall notify the board within fifteen calendar days after the occurrence of the change.
E. An alarm business shall file an application for a certificate renewal with the board no later than fourteen days before the expiration of the certificate that is currently in effect.
