ESDA set to #carryon despite pandemic disruptions

Issue 6 2021 News

ESDA, the Electronic Security Distributors’ Association, is still alive and well. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected ESDA dramatically as we had to cancel all our proposed events in 2020 and 2021.

ESDA was planning exhibitions for our members in Botswana and Cape Town. Our annual golf days, Securex 2020 breakfast as well as our stand at Securex to promote the association were all cancelled. All other events discussed by the ESDA Exco committee were also put on hold.

However, ESDA is 32 years old and the association still remains committed to encourage and protect the interests of its members as well as assist them in maintaining a high ethical standard of conduct.

The main business activity of every member is the importation, distribution or manufacturing (or a combination of these) of electronic security technology products, or the provision of services directly related to such importation, distribution or manufacturing. It is of importance to note that ESDA members are excluded from performing installation of security equipment.

The objectives of ESDA

• To promote high standards in electronic security technology products, workmanship, maintenance and service to the electronic security equipment industry.

• To maintain an unparalleled standard of ethics and conduct within the industry.

• To support, encourage and protect the interests of all its members.

• To represent the interests of members of ESDA in the context of any proposed or existing legislation, primary or subordinate, which may affect the ESDA members directly or indirectly.

For more information contact secretary@esda.org.za, membership application forms are also available on the ESDA website, www.esda.org.za
