The Master Locksmiths Association

The MLA stands for the Master Locksmiths Association, which is the largest locksmiths association in the UK. 

They are a not for profit organisation which has established its own licensing scheme in which its approved companies are vetted, undergo regular inspections to ensure quality is maintained, and employ locksmiths who hold exam based qualifications.

So by using an MLA approved locksmith you can guarantee that they have the correct qualifications which will provide peace of mind that the job will be done properly. Using MLA approved locksmiths will provide assurance that your security systems and safes are fully secure.

When Were They Established?

Established as an association 50 years ago, the MLA has a motto of “skill and integrity”. They are the leading trade association for the locksmith industry due to consistently providing high standards and promoting the level and skills and ethics within the security industry.

Recognised Government Association

The association is recognised by many national government institutions such as; the police forces, the Home Office, British Standards Institute, RISC Authority, Building Research Establishment and both the Neighbourhood and Home Watch Networks.
