What is Thatcham?
Total Quality Assurance (TQA) now encompasses all Thatcham-certified products and equipment. The subsequent extension of the scheme's coverage includes all existing vehicle security categories. TQA examines every aspect of a product's performance and service, meaning that each product that achieves the coveted mark has successfully undergone a rigorous assessment under Thatcham’s own robust criteria.
Products are monitored and periodically reviewed throughout the duration of the accreditation to ensure that the levels of quality, service, and performance are maintained.
TQA is registered as an official trademarked certification, concentrating on products designed to enhance vehicle security, safety, and reliability, as well as tools and equipment used in automotive repair. In fact, any quality product intended for use in the automotive sector can potentially carry the Thatcham Quality Assured mark. That is if the product can satisfy the rigorous demands of Thatcham’s testing and certification process, meeting the high standards of the criteria set by the experts.
Quite simply, if a product carries the Thatcham Quality Assured trademark – you can rely on it.
