The New Zealand Stamp Dealers Association Inc. is a professional body of individuals or companies whose principal activity is dealing in philatelic goods (postage stamps and postal history).

The NZSDA strives to maintain standards in the industry and members are expected to adhere to the Code of Ethics. The general public can deal with NZSDA members with confidence. Click here to view the NZSDA Code of Ethics (PDF file)

The Association was formed in 1969 at a meeting held in Wellington. Previous to that, a meeting of dealers held in New Plymouth earlier that year had decided to form a professional body for stamp dealers.

In the first five years of the Association’s existence all Annual General Meetings were held in Wellington. This was followed by four AGMs in Auckland but since then efforts have been made to have meetings one year in the North Island, followed by one in the South Island and then one at an overseas venue (the Association has several Australian members) or at a smaller centre.

For many years the NZSDA was a member of the International Federation of Stamp Dealers’ Associations (IFSDA) but resigned its membership in 2000. However the NZSDA still maintains close relations with the Australian and United Kingdom dealers’ associations.
