ESReDA is a European Association which provides a forum for the exchange of information, data and current research in Safety and Reliability and a focus for specialist expertise.

The Safety and Reliability of processes and products are topics which are the focus of increasing interest Europe wide. Safety and Reliability Engineering is viewed as being an important component in the design of a system. However the discipline and its tools and methods are still evolving and expertise and knowledge dispersed throughout Europe. There is a need to pool the resources and knowledge within Europe and ESReDA provides the means to achieve this.

ESReDA was established in 1992 to promote research, application and training in Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS). The Association provides a forum for the exchange of information, data and current research in Safety and Reliability and a focus for specialist expertise.


ESReDA aims to..

promote the development and the exchange of data, information and knowledge through the promotion of Project Groups (PG) on subjects related to Reliability, Safety and Data Analysis. In this PG’s some of the best world specialists in these subjects are able to meet and, in a first time, to aggregate their knowledge and then to disseminate it for the sake of the scientific and technological communities in Europe and around the World. This dissemination can be made by organizing seminars twice per year and publishing the most important results of the Project Groups.

ESReDA was formed from the combined forces of EuReDatA (European Reliability Data Bank Association) and ESRRDA (European Safety and Reliability Research and Development Association). The integration of the two provides a strong basis for furthering the understanding, development and dissemination of RAMS research and methods throughout Europe.
