Title 12.5 of the Business Regulation Article, Annotated Code of Maryland, also known as the "Maryland Locksmiths Act" sets forth the requirements for the licensing and regulation of businesses or commercial entities that "provide locksmith services" in Maryland. The term is defined in Section 1-101 of the Act as follows:
(h) "Provide locksmith services" means to engage professionally and for compensation in:
(1) repairing, rebuilding, rekeying, repinning, recombinating, adjusting, or installing mechanical, electrical, or electromechanical locking devices, safes, vaults, or safe deposit boxes; or
(2) operating a mechanical, electrical, or electromechanical locking device or opening safes, vaults, or safe deposit boxes by a means other than that intended by the manufacturer of such locking devices.

Locksmith businesses that must obtain a license to operate include corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, and sole proprietors. Employees who do hands-on work as defined above do not need a license to be hired or to continue working. However, employees are required to undergo a criminal background check, the results of which may have an effect on employability.

This post is to educate the public of the new Maryland Locksmith Licenses Law. As of January 2013 the state now required ALL LOCKSMITHS doing business in the state to be licensed through the Department of Labor Licensing and Regulations (DLLR). Along with this licensing all locksmiths are required to be finger printed and have a back ground check before the application for licenses are issued. The following site is the DLLR site that you can check if the locksmith you are using have used or want to use is listed. The site is updated every several days. According to several sites on the Internet there are as many as 50 locksmiths listed in Cheltenham. They are using false address's and phone numbers that roll over to a call center in another state.

ALWAYS ask for a state licenses number. Their exact location. Even is they are mobile they should not mind giving you their address. The address should be something besides the gas station on 301, the US Post Office Building or an empty lot on Sarrats Rd.
