Setting standards for a safer world

ARGE (The European Federation of Associations of Locks and Builders Hardware Manufacturers) is a European organisation that:


  • represents the security industry's values in Europe by gathering a range of national and regional organisations from around the continent. It is a meeting place for like-minded business executives who want to make their sector better for everyone.
  • develops and evaluates standards and norms, and drafts new laws in anticipation of future difficulties in the locks and building hardware business. ARGE is not only responsible for assessing standards, but it is also linked to numerous European organisations and advises laboratories on best practices in standardisation.

Committing together to the future of security

We are heavily involved in ARGE. Each of our local firms is a member, and so is the Group. Some DOM Security personnel participate in working organisations to help standardise industry goods for future usage. Henri Morel, our chairman, also presided over the Federation from 2002 to 2005. 

This demonstrates our dedication to protecting people and goods. Not only do we design efficient and innovative security solutions that comply with established rules and certifications, but we also participate in Europe's main organisation that defines security for the whole continent.
