NSF International recently partnered with industry experts Keith Risley and German Mejia to help grow its collision repair certification program.

With more than 50 years of combined experience in the collision repair industry, Risley and Mejia will play a leading role in managing this NSF certification program, the organization said.

NSF International’s independent, third-party collision repair shop certification program evaluates and certifies shops that consistently demonstrate the ability to execute high-quality repairs and provide excellent customer service. Key requirements include in-process inspections that look at the entire repair process, and ongoing quality control checks as well as equipment, training and facility requirements.

For the past 10 years, Risley and Mejia have worked with industry professionals to share technical knowledge and enhance expertise in the automotive repair industry. Both have earned I-CAR Platinum recognition and know what it’s like to work in automotive repair shops, NSF International noted.

“German and I chose NSF International because we want to work with an organization dedicated to consumer safety on a global scale and we’d like to continue to help the industry move forward in our new roles,” Risley said. “I grew up in the collision repair industry and am truly passionate about this industry that has taken care of my family and many others.”

NSF International is the only American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited certification body that provides independent repair shop certification.

“Having Keith and German join our team will bring NSF International’s collision repair shop certification to new levels,” said Dave Parzen, NSF International’s senior automotive technical project manager. “Their extensive experience in the collision repair industry will be invaluable to NSF International’s automotive certification program.”
