Stricter screening of bouncers
The Ministry of Trade is looking at ways to ensure that doormen in bars and nightclubs do not have a criminal history
A new proposal from the trade ministry seeks to ban people who are convicted of certain crimes from working as bouncers.
 
 

Some bouncers have reportedly been convicted of personal crimes, drug offences and/or using anabolic steroids.

There are also examples of bouncers who have used physical violence, according to the Ministry of Trade, which has now proposed an amendment to the Hotel and Restaurant Act.

The new proposal seeks to impose stricter screening processes for people working as doormen in the nightlife. The current law does not authorise any such screening.

The new proposal, submitted to Parliament on Friday, demands that a person working as a bouncer must be at least 18 years old and must have no previous convictions which could result in abuse of authority.

If approved, the amendment will permit police to give the appropriation authority information about bouncers’ criminal history. This information includes details on sexual abuse, drug offences, doping, weapons and other relevant misconduct.
