Automotive Recyclers Association Joins NHTSA in Warning Vehicle Owners About Counterfeit Air Bags

ARA Urges the Agency to Clearly Differentiate Between Counterfeit Airbags
and Non-Deployed Recycled OEM Air Bags

Manassas, VA -- The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) today announced its support of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) efforts to warn consumers about those who would promote the sale and use of counterfeit air bags.  ARA has long cautioned the automotive repair industry community and consumers about the dangers of using counterfeit air bags, as well as the alarming practice of omitting airbags altogether in repairs. In fact, in 2009, NHTSA reviewed fatal accidents in a 5 year period and found that airbags were missing in 18 percent of the crashed vehicles following deployment in a previous crash.

Automotive Recyclers Association Initiates
ISO 9001 Educational Research Project

Manassas, VA -- The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) today announced a bold initiative to develop a process through which its CAR and Gold Seal members could achieve ISO 9001 certification. Since 1996, the ARA CAR and Gold Seal certification programs have represented the professional automotive recycling industry’s highest level of accreditation. Several top CAR/Gold Seal facilities will participate in this first ever pilot program that will quantify the cost and effort necessary for CAR/Gold Seal members to secure and maintain ISO 9001 certification.
