The MLAA, or the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia is an internationally recognised body of the locksmith industry.  For more than 35 years, the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia (MLAA) has been constantly ensuring that its members are made up of professional locksmiths that meet certain requirements and qualifications.

What does the MLAA do?

The MLAA is a not-for-profit organisation which was conceived with the idea of supporting and promoting local businesses.  Furthermore, they provide the community with a level of trust and security – if you see a locksmith with the MLAA badge, you will know straight away that they have the necessary qualifications, insurances and requirements to give you a great service.
Over the last 35 years, the MLAA has acquired in excess of 1,000 locksmith members.  These members are located throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Why is the MLAA so important?

The MLAA offer three essential services to the community:
• Quality Assurance
• Public Accessibility
• Qualified Feedback & Support
If you’re in need of a locksmith service and you see the MLAA badge, you’ll know that they have been MLAA approved.  This means they should have the necessary skillset in order to best help you.  They also offer public accessibility.  An example of this is the Restricted Keying Systems they’ve designed.  A popular application of their innovative system can be seen which enables people with special needs to have access to certain public amenities such as toilets and changing places.  Furthermore, the MLAA acts as the peak body in the locksmith industry.  This means that any concerns, complaints and locksmith scams will all be handled and processed by them.

Just remember …

The next time you go to book a locksmith, make sure they’re members of the Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia.  Not only can you expect an excellent service, but you’ll also rest at ease knowing they’re officially registered with a large, reputable company.
