CIECA Project to Incorporate Diagnostic Scans into BMS
June 15, 2017—CIECA, a source for collision repair industry data communications standards, announced it will begin work June 19 on a new project to implement the exchange and transmission of scanning diagnostics results within the business message specification (BMS).
"Vehicle scanning has become an integral part of the entire repair process on certain vehicles. Pre-repair and Post-repair scanning has become necessary in certain situations. The information received from the vehicle scan tool should be saved with the other repair order documentation for subsequent review, auditing, and other purposes. Repairers and the industry need a method to retain and exchange this data with the entire RO file," said Darrell Amberson, of LaMettry's Collision Inc., and author of the CIECA project request.
The project is being fast-tracked to meet the needs of the industry. Contact CIECA to participate in the project.
