What is BS 10125 - The Vehicle Damage Repair Kitemark?

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.
