Parts Standards

MVDA believes that giving customers confidence in the parts they are buying, and the business selling them, is essential in increasing the use of ‘green parts’.  

As a result, MVDA will be adopting & promoting the ARA Parts Standards, and BSI’s PAS777.  

The Automotive Recyclers Association of America was established in 1943 (the same year as MVDA) and its parts standards programmes have helped to make the use of ‘recycled parts’ widespread in the insurance repair industry in the USA.  

PAS777 was developed in the UK by BSI in 2013 to help more accurately describe engines & gearboxes.

Further information about ARA parts standards can be found using this link & there are also copies in the members section of the MVDA website (Documents of Interest).
