Missouri Shop Licensing Legislation Would Be Effective in August

The Missouri Legislature is considering a bill that would create a state board of auto body repair that would license auto body repair facilities and physical damage appraisers.

Under the bill’s licensing requirements, repair facilities would be required to: pay a licensing fee of $250 annually; have all required state and federal licenses, permits and registrations; provide proof of insurance and compliance with EPA and OSHA training requirements; provide proof that employees have ASE certification; and have access to proper equipment, a spray booth and an up-to-date estimating system. To renew licenses, facilities would have to prove completion of continuing education.

The bill would also require shops to post their license and retail labor rates. Transient paintless dent repair businesses would also have to pay licensing fees.

Damage appraisers would be required to have ASE certification in damage analysis and estimating,   comply with continuing education requirements and pay a licensing fee, among other requirements.
