British Kitemark TS007:2012 BSI TS007:2012 is the revised British Kitemark for euro cylinders and security hardware.This new Kitemark uses criteria of the past Kitemark tests, i.e. BS EN 1303:2005 and BS 3621:2007 and PAS24:2007* but now has additional tests which use a common method of attack known as “lock snapping”.

Euro cylinders and security hardware will now be classified under the TS007 British Kitemark with the use of a star rating system. Euro cylinders can be rated as one star or three stars and security hardware will be rated as two stars. Cylinders are awarded a three star rating when they have passed all criteria of the TS007 British Standard Kitemark including new lock snapping tests. A one star rating is given to a cylinder lock that has met criteria of the British Kitemark but has not passed snapping tests. The locks would require additional 2 star rated security hardware to reach a TS007 3 star Kitemark.
