Companies with products which can be tested or evaluated to show effective security or crime prevention benefit may apply to be licensed members and the products awarded 'Police Preferred Specification' status. Product categories range from home security products such as doors, locks, windows, asset marking to commercial security products such as grills, shutters and security glazing.

You can become a member after testing and passing security standards specified by SBD. Our Development Officers guide you through the complete process. This includes:

  1. Guidance through the technical process of achieving product testing and certification
  2. Visit to factory and warehouse to meet you, your team and see how the products are produced
  3. Be contactable and visit you throughout your membership, offering continual support and guidance
  4. Click here to contact your local SBD Development Officer

Products that are not currently covered by a suitable public test will be subject to evaluation by a technical authority acceptable to SBD.
