Queenslanders working as security guards or bartenders will need to fill out a form if they’re suspected of being a bikie.
Queensland bikies and their associates can fill out a form to declare they are no longer part of an outlaw group.
The Queensland Police Service website has a questionnaire asking people to describe the steps they have taken to “disassociate”.
The form asks participants to circle yes or no boxes to indicate if they have returned or destroyed their club colours, if they have a club tattoo, and whether it’s been removed.
They are also asked to declare if they are an office holder, general member or associate of a bikie chapter.
New laws are coming into effect from July 1 banning bikies from working as used car sellers, security guards, locksmiths, tow truck drivers, bookmakers, pawn brokers, tattoo artists and bar workers.
More than a dozen lines on the form are set aside so people can describe their future intentions with an outlaw group and the steps their organisation has taken to disassociate from them.
A declaration section asks participants to give an undertaking to provide documents to the police within 10 business days.
Earlier this month, Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie announced the government would delay a controversial plan to ban people with bikie links from working in the building industry.
This means plumbers and electricians with suspected bikie links won’t be banned from having a trades licence until July 2015, after a federal royal commission into unions.
But new licensing requirements will apply to other industries under the Tattoo Parlours Act 2013.
Bikies can call a police hotline for help on filling out the form, which is subject to the Information Privacy Act.
The Queensland police website promises that applications to disown bike membership would be assessed “in a timely manner”.
But participants are advised that delaying a response to a letter could jeopardise their ability to hold an industry licence.
The form has to be witnessed by another signature.
