OEM certifications are issued to auto body shops by auto manufacturers after the shop has undergone a stringent authentication process. But what does that process entail, and why is it significant?
In the auto industry, pressure to meet higher standards of quality and safety has increased dramatically over the last few decades. As these obligations have been placed on auto manufacturers, similar pressures have been placed on auto body shops to be able to uphold these standards when repairing vehicles. That’s where OEM certification comes in.
What is OEM Certification?
OEM certification can mean a few things, depending on which manufacturer is issuing the certification. In general, it certifies that the body shop in question has undergone advanced training to understand the specific complexities of the manufacturer’s vehicles and that only OEM parts are used in the repair of those vehicles. Most certification programs have a representative from the manufacturer train the shop’s technicians on the make’s specific series and models. In addition to these basic elements, manufacturers can also require that the shop meet certain additional service, safety, equipment and/or education standards.
