Members and their employees shall only perform work in their areas of competence.
Members shall build their reputation on merit and shall not compete unfairly.

Why choose a professional Locksmith over a Handyman?
The Security Industry is only semi-regulated. You do not need to be licenced or qualified to work as a locksmith.
This means anybody can call themselves a locksmith, car locksmith or mobile locksmith and attempt to provide locksmithing services. By choosing a professional locksmith who is a Member of the MLAA, you can be confident that you are dealing with a professional tradesperson who is qualified, licenced, fully insured, has access to the latest technology and works for a legitimate business, and must abide by a strict Code of Ethics.
