VESA Long Standing Member Award

DataDotSA Receives Good Standing Award from VESA

DataDotSA received the VESA Awards Certificate of Recognition last week for being a member in good standing since September 2007. DataDotSA introduced the first microdots into Africa in 2001 and now supply microdot technology to over 65% of the new vehicle market. As of today over 3.7 million vehicles are now microdotted with DataDot Microdot Technology. DataDotSA takes pride in continuing to:

  • Uphold high levels of customer service
  • Comply with VESA specifications and requirements
  • Actively maintain their ISO14001 status
  • Reach continuously out to communities
  • Use integrity and honesty to lead the industry
  • Investigate new products and services that will ultimately aid in the fight against crime in Africa.

VESA (The Motor Vehicle Security Association of South Africa) is a non-profit organization responsible for regulating the manufacturing and installation standards of vehicle security systems. As a Standards Management Body their aim is not to set the standard but to assist and co-ordinate interested parties to create the standards and then facilitate testing and policing against these standards using their administrative structures.

7 years ago in 2008 VESA signed an MOU with SABS for the creation of SANS 534 for microdotting and SANS 535 for vehicle tracking. To ensure successful implementation of this MASA – the Microdot Association of Southern Africa - was established. DataDotSA are one of the founding members and support the need for an integrated approach to monitoring the microdot industry in accordance with the legislation. Transparency and accountability are embodied in the Constitution, Code of Conduct and Dispute Resolution of the Association. VESA have been recognized for their success in prevention of crime and were appointed the official vehicle security standards-generating body by SABS (Standards South Africa).  

Since its inception VESA have forged ties with insurance companies, Business Against Crime, and the National Crime Prevention Office of the SAPS. They have also co-signed the MOU with Tsohle-Unicode for the sharing of vehicle crime information.

Did you know.........
Microdots can be applied to any item of value to uniquely identify an asset?

Apart from providing currently over 3.7 million vehicles with their own DNA - microdots, or as we like to call them DataDots, can be applied to any asset of value. This means that if the valuable item or asset is stolen and recovered it can be linked back to the owner provided the owner has registered on our DataDot app.
