Ian Kitchin, Global Director commented: 

"We are very pleased to welcome our new clients into the BSI Kitemark group of bodyshops, With the development of PAS 125 into BS 10125 and the new standard being published before the end of the year it is a perfect time to join the group. Transition from the PAS to the BS 10125 will be structured and managed by the highly experienced BSI inspectors providing support to all BSI Kitemark bodyshops during the next 12 months. Linking a British Standard to the highly respected BSI Kitemark, which has over 72% consumer recognition will provide increased value to all of the Kitemark certified companies."

Events

We have been at two events which have given us the opportunity to meet with clients and share with them news about the forthcoming British Standard. We exhibited for the first time at ABP's National Meeting & Expo event in Belfast, and at the One Vizion and Ford Impact Bodyshop conference at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Our team answered technical questions and we presented to clients about what the forthcoming British Standard will mean to businesses, how transition phase will work, and our marketing support which is available for all bodyshops with a BSI Kitemark.
