The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) announced that it is making its standards available to the China Automobile Maintenance Industry Association (CAMRA), the organization at the forefront of the aftermarket part certification initiative in China. As the technical partner of CAPA, Intertek, one of the world’s largest testing laboratories, is actively working with CAMRA as a member of its technical committee to draft standards for the China domestic market. Intertek is providing assistance with the CAPA Standards and combining them with applicable Chinese specifications and standards regulations.
“CAPA is looking forward to sharing its expertise in part certification with Chinese agencies and organizations looking to improve and validate the quality of auto parts for both the Chinese domestic and export markets,” said Jack Gillis, CAPA’s executive director.
Added Debbie Klouser, CAPA’s director of operations, “Because of the worldwide acceptance of the CAPA program, CAPA Certification for Chinese parts will greatly expand their international marketability.”
