The Advisory Committee will present an overview of its work, including the next steps necessary to complete the study, at the CIC meeting to be held at the Las Vegan Hilton Nov. 2-3.

The Repair Standards Advisory Committee, formed by the
Collision Industry Conference (CIC) to assess the appetite for standards in the
U.S. collision repair industry, announced that it has concluded the
industry research phase of the feasibility study for standards. The Advisory
Committee will present an overview of its work, including the
next steps necessary to complete the study, at the CIC meeting to be held at the Las Vegan Hilton Nov. 2-3.

"The industry support for this feasibility study has
been very strong," said Michael Quinn, chair of CIC and co-chair of the Repair Standards Advisory Committee. "The
CIC has had a long history of promoting new ideas and supporting the
advancement of the collective collision industry. The work on the feasibility
study for establishing repair standards is the latest in a long line of
accomplishments for the conference."

The committee will present its update on the second day
of the CIC meeting in Las Vegas. The group is working to analyze the research
and incorporate the input into a comprehensive report to be delivered to the
conference in early 2012.
