You will require this approval if you intend to work as a manager of a brothel. A brothel must at all times during its opening hours be personally supervised by the licensee or an approved manager.
An approved manager must also be placed in effective control of the business if a licensee is absent for more than 7 days (if the licensee is absent for more than 30 days, the licensee must apply to the Agency to appoint a nominated licensee or approved manager to be in effective control). An approved brothel manager can work for multiple sex work service providers, but must notify the Agency whenever he or she starts or ceases employment in a brothel business.
An approved manager must carry an identity card issued by the Agency when working at the brothel. Please consult the responsible agency for more information.
