Dec.18, 2015—ABC Parts International Inc. has earned certification to NSF International Automotive Parts Distributor Certification Program, bringing the total number of NSF International certified distributors sites to 166 in the U.S.
The NSF International Automotive Parts Distributor Certification Program was developed with input from collision repair shops, parts distributors and insurers. It addresses the key role that distributors play in providing quality replacement parts to repairers.
To earn its certification, ABC Parts demonstrated its effective records management and inventory tracking system to track orders and parts through the supply chain. The company also met the following requirements of NSF:
- An ISO 9001-certified quality management system
- Business liability insurance
- Customer service procedures requiring timely order processing and communications
- A defective parts procedure including a customer part complaint process
- A formal corrective action process for complaints and an immediate recall plan (to use should the situation arise)
“We are very pleased to be an NSF International certified distributor as it exemplifies the quality systems we have in place,” said Mitchell Javaheri, president of ABC Parts International, Inc. “NSF International certification provides confidence to collision repairers, insurers and consumers that ABC Parts meets the highest criteria for system management to address part traceability and quality parts.”
“A top-10 U.S. automotive insurance company now requires that their aftermarket automotive parts be purchased from NSF International Certified Automotive Parts Distributors,” said Bob Frayer, global managing director of NSF International’s Automotive Certification Programs. “Having effective systems to track orders and parts is critical in meeting the needs of insurers and repair shops. NSF International distributor certification verifies that distributors such as ABC Parts have effective systems in place and meet rigid performance standards.”
