A new Trade Association

The Tracking and Aftermarket Security System Association (TASSA). As been formed, made up from leading Tracking, Security industry manufacturers and traders who are at the forefront of solutions for vehicle crime prevention.

In 2016 Thatcham announced that from 31st December 2018 it will no longer accredit Aftermarket Alarms, Immobilisers and Opportunist Theft Deterrents. In addition, those tracking systems meeting Thatcham category 5, 6, 7 have been replaced, with the old categories no longer receiving categorisation from December 2018.

For many businesses and vehicle owners it is important that

standards ensure the reliability and effectiveness of products

are maintained, and whilst Thatcham will continue to do this  for some products, and vehicle manufacturers original equipment, the remainder of aftermarket security products will be unregulated.

The new Tassa trade association will provide the confidence to businesses and the consumer. Providing regulation and standards for its members and their products. Supporting current standards, such as those recognised by the insurance industry, and developing new standards to meet the needs of the wider community. 


  • Maintain Standards

  • Act on behalf of its members providing "One Voice"

  • Gain Industry Recognistion in the UK and Internationally

  • Continually Improve standards

  • Provide Solutions to Combat Future Vehicle Crime

  • To Support Law Enforcement

  • Work with Industry partners to provide a joined up approach

In response to the news of the creation of TASSA, industry feedback has been positive:
“ Although Thatcham Research is not affiliated or connected with any such organisations, it is supportive of the aftermarket security industry and any tade associations that represent their interests.”   - (Thatcham)
