China's Largest Insurer Provides First CAPA Certified Parts
Feb. 1, 2018—The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) recently announced that the People’s Insurance Company of China Limited (PICC), the largest property and casualty insurer in China, recently made over 150 CAPA certified parts numbers available.
The certified parts include hoods, fenders, grilles, and bumper covers.
In November 2016, CAPA and PICC were joined by the China Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association (CAMRA) collision repair committee and Intertek Shanghai, the certification body of the CAPA program in China, in signing a strategic agreement to collaborate to bring diverse areas of expertise to the China market. Intertek Shanghai played a significant role in implementing the agreement after members of CAPA’s Board visited principals in Beijing.
“This is another milestone for CAPA as we continue to support the certification of quality parts in China,” said Jack Gillis, CAPA executive director.
“We applaud PICC for leading the way to make high quality CAPA certified parts available to Chinese consumers,” said Debbie Klouser, CAPA director of operations.
