We've made it our mission to be the most recognised and informed association within the credit industry
To realise this vision The Creditors' Protection Association knows that it must serve in its members' best interests. This means we will always share information about the credit (FMCG / Pharmaceutical / Plastics) industry with our members, and we will stand by them when support is needed. Take a look at some of the ways we achieve this whilst keeping within the scope of the relevant statutory acts.
TCPA has a rich history spanning more than 50 years - just one more reason why we pride ourselves on being extremely successful in this field
The Creditors' Protection Association has the benefit of being formed from the merging of two independent bodies. Having similar visions and members, their combined expertise has resulted in a formidable Association with strong membership.

1960During 1960 the TCPA - then known as The Transvaal Creditors’ Protection Association - operated independently servicing only the FMCG (Fast-moving Consumer Goods) market.
1985The PCMA (Pharmaceutical Credit Management Association) was formed to fill the gap in the pharmaceutical credit environment. The two had a similar vision and serviced the same members just in different markets.
1990The Directors decided that the two associations should merge. The change benefited the members especially with respect to costs. In addition it lead to the introduction of the CREDCON conferences, an annual event where credit managers from different industries can meet and interact with one another.
1999The Board of Directors, with the consent of its members, changed the legal entity name to: The Creditors’ Protection Association
TodayThe TCPA Board of Directors strives to build an even stronger membership base, be innovative, energetic and, most importantly, provide continuous support to its members. Today, our main aim is to expand into other business market sectors.
