CAPA Update and Request for Feedback

As CAPA enters its second quarter century, they are checking in with the nation’s industry leaders to get their very general reaction to CAPA as they plan the next 25 years. But first, here’s a very brief update on CAPA’s market presence.

There are 5 CAPA standards: CAPA 101: Metal parts, CAPA 201: Plastic parts, CAPA 301: Lighting, CAPA 401: Foam and CAPA 501: Bumpers. In addition manufacturers have requested additional standards for items such as radiators, condensers, cooling fans, and mirrors –
which we are exploring. Currently there are 14,600 CAPA Certified part applications and over 63 million CAPA certified parts used since 1990.

CAPA, founded in 1987, is the nation’s only independent, non-profit, certification organization for automotive crash parts whose sole purpose is to ensure that both consumers and the industry have the means to identify high quality parts via the CAPA Quality Seal. CAPA is an ANSI accredited standards developer for competitive crash repair parts. CAP A does not sell or distribute parts. The CAPA Certification program is a non-profit, independent, public service, not an effort to sell certification services.
