Accredited European certification for a safe is essential legal proof of standard that will help maintain insurance cover long term.
EU Parliament regulation 765/2008 created the system that provides the legal basis of accreditation for the certification of safes to European standard EN1143-1. This system is backed by regular auditing and market surveillance and is verifiable, proof of standard for both insurance and litigation purposes. A safe with properly accredited European certification will display at least one stamped metal certification plate on the inside of the door.
"Accredited European certification for fire or burglary resistance will always be displayed on a stamped metal plate on the inside of a safe's door, never a sticker"
An accredited certification plate for a safe will display the logo of an accredited certification body, burglary resistance grade, and most importantly confirmation that the certification body is accredited to ISO/IEC 17065, legal assurance that the certifier is accredited under European law. The same information will be available on accredited certification documents which are freely available and should always be asked for. If you consider that 70% of safes tested by accredited European testing labs fail on the first attempt the implications of accepting unaccredited claims of EN1143-1 burglary resistance are obvious.

|Safes bearing LPCB "certification" are regularly sold in Ireland despite the fact that the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) (UK) has never been an accredited to certify burglary resistance of safes. An LPCB plate can easily be mistaken for an accredited certification mark as the format of these plates is very similar to that of accredited certification bodies and will often reference European standards, however, an ISO/IEC17065 accreditation which will be present on an accredited certification plate is missing on LPCB plates.|
