Tested & Certified by Top Third Party Organizations
The quality of Sherman products is backed by NSF and CAPA certifications that validate replacement parts are free from defects in material and workmanship and are functionally equivalent to the original equipment in respect to form, fit, finish, function, safety, crash performance, appearance, product lifespan, and corrosion resistance.
NSF (National Sanitation Foundation)
Accredited for all key automotive industry standards, NSF International is a globally recognized independent organization that tests, audits and certifies products utilized for vehicle repair to ensure they maintain the integrity of the original collision management system. NSF addresses industry-wide concerns about identifying high quality automotive aftermarket collision parts through its Automotive Collision Replacement Parts Program. The organization compares aftermarket parts to their OEM service counterparts to ensure that the aftermarket parts meet OEM requirements for form, fit, and function. The NSF mark on Sherman products tells consumers that the part and the production facility have met the program’s stringent requirements.

CAPA (Certified Automotive Parts Association)
CAPA (Certified Automotive Parts Association) is the nation's leading independent, nonprofit parts certification organization which thoroughly tests replacement parts to make sure they fit, perform and last the same as the original components. CAPA Certification is an important validation for parts distributors, insurance adjustors, body shops and car owners.
Only the products that meet the industry's toughest standards earn the right to be called CAPA-Certified replacement parts. Sherman is proud to offer products that carry the CAPA Seal. Once the manufacturer and part become CAPA-certified, they are subject to random inspections to make sure CAPA quality standards are maintained, so customers can be sure that when they get Sherman parts, they receive reliable parts the first time, every time. Only genuine replacement parts are CAPA-Certified.
CAPA’s Steps to Quality:
New Part Approval – Stringent testing process of material, form, function, durability
Factory Approval – ISO 9001 / TS-16949 certification
Regular Re-Inspection – Random fit, corrosion, and other tests
Marketplace Quality Monitoring – Random testing, compliant and recall programs
CAPA encourages competition in the marketplace to increase and assure part quality
CAPA is constantly expanding the certification program to include more parts and new materials
