Security Alarm Systems Registration Requirements (2012 PA 580)

Effective January 2, 2013, the Security Alarm Systems Act (Act), Senate Bill 1291 of 2012 was signed into law and became Public Act 580 of 2012.

This act requires providers of Security Alarm Systems to annually file a registration statement with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) before operating in the state.

Requirements for filing a registration statement can be found in sections 3 and 4 of the Act. The department's procedures to process a registration statement are as follows:

  • A registration statement is required to be submitted online in MiCLEAR.
  • The registration statement will be reviewed to determine if it meets the requirements of the Act. 
  • A letter will be mailed to the registrant that will include the required fee amount and whether or not the registration statement meets the requirements. (The fee is based on the time required for review.) 
  • The fee is required to be submitted online in MiCLEAR.

Please note: It is the responsibility of the registrant to determine if a registration or license is required. The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Corporations, Securities, and Commercial Licensing Bureau and its employees cannot provide legal advice. You may wish to consult an attorney to discuss legal matters pertinent to your individual situation.
