The IMA now offers Photo Identification Cards.
The negative licensing regime in Victoria gave rise for a solution to assist agents in proving their bona fides when undertaking field work. Possibly a similar need exists in other jurisdictions where the licence format doesn’t include a photo identification card or where there are currently no licences issued.
Members may have an annual IMA Photo ID Cards issued for their employees and sub-contractors. Taking up the IMA Photo ID Cards is voluntary and like services such as bonds, extra directory listings and the ASIAS service is offered on a user pays basis.
