CAPA announced that its website, capacertified.org, has been updated with a new look, increased functionality and more information. Collision repair professionals, distributors, insurers, parts manufacturers and consumers can quickly and easily zero in on the information they need to make an informed choice when it comes to collision repair parts. Whether searching for a part or looking into the science behind CAPA’s testing program, capacertified.org provides a transparent look at the one-part certification program that has, according to CAPA, made a significant improvement in the quality of aftermarket parts that carry the CAPA Quality Seal.
“We are a unique market resource and a public service,” said Jack Gillis, CAPA’s executive director. “One of the many things that sets us apart is our transparency. We are extremely open and public about our program, standards, procedures and tolerances. And that’s the way it should be. We hold no secrets and have no hidden agendas.
“As the new website makes clear, the certification standards used by CAPA are no mystery; they are public and published for all to see. There’s no curtain separating our testing from all of those who rely on our certification to make decisions that relate to quality, safety and cost.”
As an aftermarket part quality-testing program, CAPA certification provides proof of quality, safety and performance.
“It’s not easy to earn the yellow-and-blue CAPA quality seal,” said Debbie Klouser, CAPA’s director of operations. “The new capacertified.org is more than informative – it can save shops, distributors, insurers and consumers from serious problems down the road.”
