You Asked: What does it mean to be an accredited interlock installer?

April 16, 2020
What is an accredited interlock installer?

An accredited interlock installer has been approved by a state government to provide alcohol interlock services for state interlock programs. All interlock programs in Australia are run through accredited providers. That means that installation, servicing and removal of your device can only be legally conducted by an approved list of interlock providers in your state.

What are the requirements of being an accredited supplier?

Accredited suppliers must put their interlock devices through rigorous testing to ensure that they are high quality, reliable and conform to state requirements. They must have processes in place to protect participant data and regularly send it to the state regulatory body. Ensuring that they provide a high level of assistance to participants on the program is also expected, such as requiring adequate service centre coverage across the state and customer support lines for participants to receive assistance.

Who are the accredited interlock suppliers in Australia?

Only three accredited interlock suppliers currently operate across Australia states and territories; Smart Start Interlocks is one of them. Your state regulatory body should inform you which suppliers are certified to operate in your state.
