First parts certified under Thatcham scheme

The first aftermarket parts have been certified under Thatcham and TUV Rheinland’s new joint parts certification scheme.

Launched in September 2008, the scheme enables parts to be tested on a global platform more quickly, increasing the market penetration and promoting a greater volume of available certified parts at competitive prices for repairers and insurers to specify, said Thatcham.

Dean Lander, Thatcham's accreditation manager, said "This is a momentous step forward in a unique co-operation between two globally recognised organisations working together to provide suitable independent certification for crash replacement parts.

He added: “Together we work with the biggest and best suppliers in this sector and we are confident this is just the start of a very successful program."
