CIC Committee Taking Next Step to Create Collision Industry Repair Standards

The Repair Standards Advisory Committee, formed by the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) to address the desire for standards in the U.S. collision repair industry, announced the next step it’s taking to form the standard-setting body proposed at the July 2010 CIC meeting. In support of this effort, the committee has posted a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a consultant to assist the group in the preparation of a business case statement for the new organization.

"As the committee is comprised entirely of volunteers, the group believed the time was right to engage a consultant to assist the committee in its work to define and establish the proposed standards organization," said Russell Thrall III, chair of the Repair Standards Advisory Committee.

The business case will be used by the organization to define the demand for repair standards based upon interviews and research with collision repairers, insurers, equipment manufacturers, paint system manufacturers, vehicle manufacturers and others. The business case will also define the scope of the new organization and how it will develop standards, how the standards will be used by the collective industry and how the organization will be staffed, governed and funded.  
 
The work will build upon the efforts of the previous CIC Repair Standards Committee.

"Many individuals, businesses and groups have expressed support for the formation of the proposed institute, and the committee believes the creation of the business case will serve to define and help communicate the benefits of collision repair standards for both the industry and the consumer," said Thrall. "The business case will define the scope and goals of the proposed collision repair standards institute and build upon the excellent work of the CIC Repair Standards Committee."
 
The RFP is available to download from the CIC website under "Latest Work Products or News."
