Association Profile

The FDIA (Fire Detection Industry Association) was formed in June 1999 to provide representation and leadership to the fire detection and gaseous extinguishing system industries. The Gas Extinguishing Division (GED) was incorporated into the FDIA in August 2004.

The purpose of the FDIA is to uplift the quality and professionalism within the industry through training and by informing its members, consulting engineers and specifiers of changes and technologies within and affecting the industry, using this website and various social media platforms thereby providing an overall service to the South African community.

The FDIA is administered by a committee elected by its members from within the relevant fire detection and gaseous extinguishing industries.

Once the application for membership is approved by the committee members, the incoming FDIA member is registered onto the FDIA website. We expect our members to adhere to the National Standards.
