SCRS Addresses OEM Standards at Oklahoma City Meeting

Working agenda developed and actionable items established with goal of making OEM repair recommendations more accessible.


The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) hosted a face-to-face meeting on standards on April 25 in Oklahoma City, Okla., just prior to the start of the Collision Industry Conference (CIC). The meeting consisted of national repair associations, I-CAR, the OEM Roundtable and many of the top automakers in the U.S.

Last November, more than two dozen additional state, regional, national and international collision repair organizations recognized OEM repair procedures as the industry’s official repair "standard" for collision repair. This meeting further advanced their efforts by setting up an opportunity to create a working agenda and establish some actionable items.
"A clear takeaway from each of the meetings we’ve held is that the group indeed is powered with a clearly defined sense of purpose," said SCRS Chairman Aaron Clark. "There is complete consensus that our task at hand is to ensure that collision repairers across the nation are able to easily access and attain the technical information that has been recognized as the standard of repair for our industry."
The work group established key contacts, further refined the communications strategy, and developed agenda items and tasks which were assigned as internal action items. Participants exchanged reports from each of the organizations involved, including one from I-CAR on the progress of their consideration to facilitate an industry council as requested by the repair community in November of 2011. Future meetings, timelines and work product were discussed as the groups came to consensus on the next steps to presenting easily attainable technical standards of care for collision repair.
