SCEC Locksmith Services


When choosing John Barnes as your SCEC endorsed locksmith, you can have confidence in our capabilities and trust that we have undergone rigorous vetting processes to work with integrity and confidentiality.

A SCEC endorsed locksmith is a locksmith service provider who has undergone a thorough evaluation and certification process by the SCEC (Security Construction and Equipment Committee). These locksmiths have met the specific requirements set forth by SCEC to provide locksmith services for high-security installations in Australian government departments and other critical environments.

Our SCEC endorsed locksmiths possess in-depth knowledge of the latest security standards and requirements and have the expertise to handle complex security systems. They are trained in the installation, maintenance, and repair of high-security locks and key systems, as well as other SCEC approved containers and security components.



We provide SCEC-approved high-security locks tailored to different security zones, from SL2 to SL5, with SL3 being the most common zone. Each of these zones require specific hardware which is to be installed and certified by a SCEC Locksmith to meet stringent SCEC security standards. Whether you need a quote or supply and install or certification, John Barnes has you covered.


John Barnes can design and implement restricted key systems — including Abloy Protec 2, Bi-Lock, and EVVA 4KS — that offer enhanced key control and prevent unauthorised duplication. These systems ensure that only authorised individuals can obtain duplicate keys, providing an extra layer of security.


Our SCEC endorsed locksmiths can conduct comprehensive security assessments and consultations to identify vulnerabilities and recommend appropriate security measures. They have a deep understanding of security requirements and can provide tailored solutions — such as alarm systems, security equipment, and associated hardware — to meet the unique needs of Australian government agencies, Australian government security zones, and other critical infrastructure.


Our administrative and personnel security team can assist with key management solutions, including key tracking, auditing, and secure storage. These measures ensure proper control and accountability of keys within sensitive environments.

SCEC locksmith, government endorsed


SCEC locksmiths are skilled in upgrading existing security systems to meet SCEC standards. They can retrofit locks, access control systems, and interact with other security components like a Dormakaba X10 High Security Electronic Lock or Lockwood ES9000 Electric Strikes to enhance overall security and comply with specific government regulations.


John Barnes can supply and install specialised locks for secure containers, safes, and vaults used to protect classified or sensitive materials. These locks provide high levels of physical security and are designed to resist tampering and unauthorised access.


SCEC endorsed locksmiths have an in-depth understanding of SCEC’s security standards and guidelines. They ensure that all installations and services comply with these standards to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of the security measures implemented.
