With the lack of any form of government based regulation of the locksmithing industry it is vital that you look for an independently vetted, inspected and competent locksmith. The MLA’s licensing scheme for it’s approved companies is the ideal way to ensure that a bonafide locksmith is being used.
With the MLA having changed the law on the vetting of locksmiths in 2009, where subsequent to a large campaign, debates in the houses of Commons and Lords, the association was added to the exceptions order for the rehabilitation of offenders act enabling it to perform standard level CRB checks on its members.
Add to this vetting, the regular inspection of approved companies, including checking of jobs done, paperwork trails for quality purposes, insurances etc, and the need for every MLA Approved Company to employ a locksmith with an exam based proof of competence, and the users can rest assured that they are using locksmiths of the highest quality.
To help provide further peace of mind to end users the MLA is also a corporate affiliate member of the trading standards institute, a trade association member of the Association of Chief Police Officer’s Secured by Design organisation and working closely together with the likes of the Neighbourhood and Home Watch Network as well as with consumer organisations such as Which?
So if you need a locksmith, then make sure you look for the MLA Approved Company logo and check they are MLA licensed by checking against this website >>>>>
