Memorandum of Incorporation for SADA
The Management, Conduct and general Affairs of the Association are governed by the contents of the Memorandum of Incorporation. It is the guideline for governance and compliant behaviour on the part of board members and paid-up members of the Association. Proposed changes to this document are only possible if a majority of voting members support a resolution to alter it.
Free trade benefits consumers, worldwide
The home appliance industry is a global one-manufacturers make and sell products-from refrigerators to toasters-across the world. Consumers enjoy choice in brick and mortar or online shops, and that choice is one of the greatest advantages of the technological world we live in. Therefore, 9 home appliance associations, representing an innovative industry on several continents and united by the IRHMA roundtable, are strong believers in the benefits of free trade and hope to de-escalate any existing trade tension.
Cyber security knows no borders and requires action on all continents
New technologies have become an essential part of our lives and our homes, helping people save precious resources, such as energy, water, and time, while also bringing comfort and joy to our daily lives. Connected products are part of this technological development and they are here to stay. By next year, there will be 50 billion connected devices globally, presenting unlimited possibilities and unprecedented opportunities. With this market potential comes increased responsibilities and challenges for product manufacturers.

Energy Efficiency Labelling on Domestic Appliances
The Energy Efficiency Label has been designed to provide consumers with accurate and comparable information on the Energy Efficiency of household appliances. The information provided on the label indicates the energy efficiency class of the appliance, the manufacturer and the appliance model. On some appliances, as an example washing machines, the label will also display non-energy data such as water consumption per cycle and the noise level of the appliance when in operation. For further information, enquire with the manufacturer or contact the Association.
The Association fully supports the mandatory use of the Energy Efficiency label and the guidance it provides to consumers in making the best choice when buying a new appliance. Additionally, SADA promotes the continuous improvement in appliance specifications and thus energy efficiency values. ( MEPS – Minimum Energy Performance Values )
