CAPA Reaches 100 Million Certified Parts Milestone
Jan. 15, 2019—The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent nonprofit standard-setting and certification organization for automotive parts, announced that it has certified over 100 million aftermarket parts since 1990. Samples of the 100 million parts were all tested and certified to CAPA standards by Intertek, a leading total quality assurance provider to industries worldwide, and who operates the CAPA certification program around the world.
The standards include those for metal, plastic, nonwoven fabric, lighting, radiator and bumper parts.
“CAPA’s priority has always been to ensure that high-quality, certified aftermarket parts are an option for insurers, repairers, and consumers. We’re thrilled to have reached this major milestone as we continue to work with dedicated manufacturers who choose to obtain CAPA certification for their parts in an effort to bring high-quality products to people around the world," said Kerry Tapio, director of CAPA Program at Intertek.
