BS10125 Scheme updates

Changes to the Kitemark scheme for vehicle damage repair are good news for body shops and garages, car makers and insurers, and retail and fleet customers.

For over 10 years, the BSI Kitemark for Vehicle Damage Repair has been helping repairers ‘prove’ themselves to motorists and work providers. Originally based at first on the publicly available specification PAS 125, and from 2014, on the full British standard BS 10125, it’s only given 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 its credibility. 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.
