Drawing on best practice from across the industry, BS 10125 the Vehicle Damage Repair Kitemark specifies the best approach to conducting consistently safe, high quality repairs to accident damaged vehicles.
Originally based at first on the publicly available specification PAS 125, BS 10125 certification is only awarded to repairers who have the technical competence and the management systems and procedures to operate and perform to the highest standards.
Consistency and quality are key to the credibility of the BS 10125 Vehicle Damage Repair Kitemark. A Kitemark is never awarded ‘for life’: BSI inspectors regularly return to ensure standards are being maintained and will revoke the licence to use the symbol if they uncover significant non-conformities and a client is unwilling to put things right. It is a truly independent certification scheme, certified by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). Staff are competent and trained.
Correct repair processes are follows:
- Staff are competent and trained
- Tools and equipment are suitable and maintained
- Parts are appropriate for safe repair
- Quality control procedures are followed.
