Benefits of SMDA Membership

There are many benefits to becoming an SMDA Member, for example Members can sit on the SMDA Management Panel and provide input into the assurance process for the Scheme Operator’s product outputs. For manufacturers, whilst those wanting to test their devices are not required to be SMDA Members, in recognition of their contribution to the development and shaping of the scheme, those involved will receive discounts on the cost of testing services.
