About Us


in operation

CESA provides a forum for suppliers of consumer appliances to focus on regulatory, technical and commercial issues that affect the capacity of member companies to supply product in the Australian market. The association achieves this through close consultation with government, positions on Standards Australia and New Zealand committees and facilitating discussions.

More About CESA

CESA provides a united voice for industry and a high level of input on numerous key industry issues. The Association acts as a point of contact for Government and regulators and has worked closely with government on energy efficiency, product stewardship, water labelling, EMC, electrical/gas safety, electronic waste, education and training, codes of conduct and performance issues.

Communicate Directly With Government

CESA members meet quarterly for a full day. Regulatory and technical managers of member companies primarily attend the forum meetings. Representatives from government and regulatory agencies are also invited to attend CESA meetings.
