News insight: Accident repair standards
The fleet industry is being urged to be wary of garages which have not signed up to accreditation schemes that reach the Kitemark standard.

Ensuring accident repairs to fleet vehicles are fit for purpose is key to managing risk and BSI is warning fleet operators that garages and bodyshops which cut corners could end up landing them in court.

“The Kitemark scheme is the most robust of them all,” said Claire Lynam, head of global marketing communications at BSI Product Services.

“We don’t have any affiliation to the automotive industry, we’re not subsidised by anybody and once we’ve audited a garage against the Kitemark criteria, we then go back at least annually to carry out further checks.

“There are some schemes that you can just simply sign up to online, you download the logo and you’re ready to go. That’s just not good enough. People need to be able to trust an accreditation scheme.”

However, there are several other respected schemes available to garages, including rival mark CarsQA.

And, with the first case of a company facing charges under the Corporate Manslaughter Act (Fleet News, April 30), confidence in the level of service is crucial to fleets managing risk, according to Smith.

To obtain the Kitemark, businesses must address key areas, including customer service and facilities; the quality of workmanship; ability to use equipment available; technical inspection; and fair and transparent billing.

“The Kitemark demonstrates to fleet managers that best practice and due diligence has been applied,” explained Smith. “But, while it won’t go all the way to making them compliant with corporate manslaughter or various other health and safety legislation, it will go a long way towards helping them to do so.”
