The legislation states that no insurer may require the use of replacement crash parts in the repair of a motor vehicle unless the part is at least of like kind and quality to the part being replaced in terms of fit, function and finish. The text specifically recognizes parts that meet American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards. The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) is currently the only ANSI standards developer for these parts.

The bill also states that, within 12 months of purchase from the dealer, no insurer may require the use of non-OEM replacement crash parts in a car’s repair.
