Korea to Begin Using CAPA-Certified Parts
July 24, 2014—The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) has signed an agreement with the Korean Insurance Development Institute (KIDI) and the Korean Automobile Parts Association that will allow Korean markets to begin using CAPA-certified parts.
The parts sent to Korean markets will use the same technical requirements that CAPA uses through the world, helping the country avoid quality problems that have caused concerns in other markets, according to Jack Gillis, CAPA’s executive director.
“This means that CAPA Certified manufacturers are ready to go, when it comes to supplying high quality parts to the Korean market,” Gillis said. “We especially appreciate our close-working relationship with KIDI, the Korean counterpart to the well-respected U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).”
CAPA is an American National Standards Institute-accredited standards developer for competitive crash repair parts. For more information about the organization, visit CAPAcertified.org.
