Thatcham Quality Accreditation

Thatcham Quality Accreditation (TQA) is a robust verification programme for the assessment and recognition of automotive aftermarket devices. TQA concentrates on building and verifying quality in the manufacture, design and performance of a product.

L4V currently has both a slamlock and deadlock that have been accredited. The only automotive locks that have passed the stringent criteria. In addition our Defender product has been doubly accredited by Thatcham as a repair module and as a protective plate.

Each of these L4V product has been rigorously tested to predefined criteria established by Thatcham. This testing, supported by rigorous examination of quality system and manufacturing process controls, is intended to provide confidence in our products performance and an objective evaluation of their capabilities.

All of this is monitored and periodically reviewed throughout the duration of the accreditation to ensure that the levels of quality, service and performance are retained.

All accredited products are listed within Thatcham’s accreditation database. Thatcham Quality Accreditation does not guarantee insurer recognition.
