WHO IS VESA?
The Motor Vehicle Security Association of South Africa (VESA) is a non-profit organisation that was established in 1987. VESA is currently the only organisation of its kind that regulates the manufacturing standards, installation standards and Certification of Vehicle Security Systems in South Africa.

VESA protects the interests of insurers and the general public from being misled by unscrupulous businesses offering inferior services and products for vehicle security. VESA Accredited installers are properly trained and fitment procedure integrity is constantly monitored.

The standards set by VESA consist of elements set by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) as well as vehicle security industry affiliates. Recognising VESA’s success in preventing crime, the organisation has been appointed as the official vehicle security standards-generating body by Standards South Africa (StanSA), previously the SABS.

ABS, which stands for the Accreditation Bureau for Security and Safety, was established in 2000 to independently test and approve vehicle security products. The ABS Test House sets standards together with VESA Product Supplier Members. These ABS Specifications are reviewed annually or as required to ensure that it remains up to date with the latest technology and standards. All products tested and approved by ABS are given ABS Approval. Once the product has been installed into a vehicle and certified with a VESA Certificate, then only does the product carry VESA Approval.

CAUTIONARY NOTICE BOARD Read More
ATTENTION SHORT TERM INSURANCE BROKERS: Please ensure that your clients are informed about the VESA Certificate as proof of a quality tested vehicle security device. Many consumers don`t read their policy wording and are in for a nasty surprise should they have a vehicle theft claim and should they not have complied with the Insurer`s requirements regarding anti-theft devices. VESA receives many calls from the public who confirm that they were never informed to obtain a VESA Certificate as proof of their vehicle`s compliance to the term "VESA Approved". The result is that their claim was either repudiated or had to pay a higher excess in the event of a vehicle theft claim. All VESA Members are obligated to issue VESA Certificates for ABS Approved products installed. Should you be in doubt, please call VESA on 011 315 3588 for assistance to verify that you have a VESA Certificate issued for your vehicle`s anti-theft device. Alternatively visit any of the VESA Members to inspect your vehicle to ensure that your vehicle complies with your short term insurance policy. Prevention is better than cure!
