Certification Program

Participants in the BHMA® Certification Program voluntarily submit a hardware product to independent laboratory testing to confirm that the product fully meets the criteria of its ANSI/BHMA standard.  In-factory audits are coordinated periodically to assure that products comply to the standard. Products unable to pass the auditing process face loss of certification. This industry-wide certification program does not call for a manufacturer to be a BHMA® member in order to certify its products.

 

The two residential standards—for locks and for deadbolts—are certified and labeled with the BHMA Certified® SecureHome™ label. This label includes the familiar BHMA Certified® mark within a “house” shape and provides information on the testing in three key areas of most importance to homeowners: Security, Durability and Finish.
