Based on the recognized industry standard which identifies the key methods, people and processes to follow when carrying out vehicle repairs, the BSI Kitemark for Vehicle Damage Repair is a truly independent certification scheme, certified by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service).
Whether you're are an independent body shop, part of a body shop or accident repair group, or a mobile repairer, you can achieve a BSI Kitemark by being independently inspected and achieving BSI Kitemark status.
The BSI Kitemark is important for fleet managers and accident management companies too. Whether you outsource your service, maintenance and repairs or manage your own workshops, making sure that your repairs are BSI Kitemark approved can help you demonstrate your duty of care.
This means proving that:
- Correct repair processes are followed
- Staff are competent and trained
- Tools and equipment are suitable and maintained
- Parts are appropriate for safe repair
- Quality control procedures are followed
The BSI Kitemark scheme is adopted industry-wide by the most forward thinking body shops and accident repair centres who are committed to carrying out work only to the highest standards. Plus it’s recognized by automotive manufacturers and most major insurance companies.
