RMI Standards and Certification

Call: 0845 305 4237

Invitations to comment on the changes that were proposed by the SVS 20 industry group  took place in June and July 2016, and on the 20 September 2016 the British Standards Institution (BSI) published the updated version of BS 10125. The new iteration of the Standard has altered the areas relating to technician proof of competence and the acceptance of manufacturer training as that proof of competence – subject to certain criteria being met.

This should help to reduce the duplication of training costs for bodyshops that hold manufacturer approvals and are certified to BS 10125. Manufacturer training, which has an assessed outcome and is ‘founded on or equivalent’ to the relevant National Occupational Standard, (NOS), will now be accepted as a supplement to the currently accepted VCQ’s and IMI Accreditations (ATAs), as proof of Technician current competence.
