Master Locksmith's Association

The Master Locksmiths Association is a non-profit making body; established to set and promote standards of conduct, practice and materials within Locksmithing. It also encourages its members to further their knowledge through ongoing education, regional meetings, seminars and the information disseminated made available through its membership magazine, Keyways.

Standards of entry to the MLA are high and its motto of "Skill and Integrity" emphasise its determination to ensure that the public, government and industry receive the correct service and advice on security matters from its members.

From a small friendly meeting of 'like-minded' locksmiths in London, it has evolved into the professional organisation that is it today. The first meeting group instigated the embryonic Master Locksmiths Association in 1958 and in 1986 it became a limited company. 1994 saw a major restructure and now the membership is world-wide.

The MLA is recognised as the authoritative body for locksmithing by:-

The Police, Home Office, British Standards Institute, Association of British Insurers (ABI), Building Research Establishment (BRE) and many other trade and professional bodies all acknowledge the MLA as the authoritative body in its field.
