Information for Collision Repair Facilities

Certified Auto Recyclers are committed to providing quality, recycled parts to the collision repair industry, and they demonstrate their commitment by adhering to recognized industry standards. The ARA Certified Recycler program standards have been developed in consultation with the ICBC recycled parts liaison committee, the ARA’s B-CAR division executive committee, and the ARA’s certified recycler advisory committee. The program incorporates internationally recognized parts-grading standards, along with ICBC supplier requirements and performance standards.

Unlike other certification programs, which merely consist of a pledge to adhere to standards, ARA Certified Auto Recyclers are only qualified after their employees complete the required training. They maintain their designation by undergoing regular performance evaluations to ensure they are adhering to the program standards.

Collision repair shops can easily determine which recycled parts are coming from an ARA Certified Auto Recycler. When searching for recycled parts, just look for the ARA Certified Recycler program logo:
