ASA Urges Approval of NH OEM Repair Legislation
July 30, 2019—New Hampshire legislators recently approved House Bill 664 and sent it to the governor for his signature.
The Automotive Service Association (ASA) is asking New Hampshire repairers to contact Gov. Chris Sununu in support of allowing important OEM Repair Procedure legislation to become law.
According to the statement, ASA Washington, D.C. representative Bob Redding submitted comments to the New Hampshire Senate saying that ASA does not support the use of OEM parts only but its interest is in requiring the industry to adhere to a set of repair procedures that assure the best opportunity for vehicle safety.
Additionally, Redding said, the bill’s language recognizes policymakers’ interest in providing for scanning as part of the repair process. ASA has long emphasized the importance of pre- and post-scans in the collision repair process.
