NSF is a globally recognized, not-for-profit, non-governmental, independent organization that specializes in standards development, product certification, education and risk management for public health and safety. Replace is the first recipient of NSF’s Automotive Collisions Parts Distributor Certification. This certification program demonstrates that distributors have quality management systems that address product traceability and recall processes for collision parts. To further aftermarket part quality assurance, the AQRP (Assured Quality Replacement Parts) program was developed by NSF at the request of Replace. Essential to insurance adjustor quality requirements and repair shop owner credibility, AQRP validates that collision parts are free from defects in material and workmanship and are functionally equivalent to the OE replacement part in respect to safety, crash performance, form, fit, finish, function, appearance, product life and corrosion resistance. Further, NSF audits approved suppliers annually, and all certified parts are entered into an AQRP product listing. Notably, parts are registered by invoice and can be tracked to the vehicle installation, and in the unlikely event it ever should be necessary, a product recall procedure is in place. AQRP parts meet the quality requirements of major national insurance companies.
