The Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA) is a non-profit organization, which oversees an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved testing and inspection program that certifies the quality of parts used for auto body repairs. CAPA’s goal is to promote price and quality competition in the crash parts industry and thereby reduce the cost of crash repairs to consumers without sacrificing quality. CAPA is not a manufacturing, marketing or sales organization. CAPA simply established standards for competitive (non-car company) cosmetic replacement parts in order to ensure their functional equivalency to car company parts. The program provides consumers, collision repairers, part distributors, and insurance adjusters with an objective method of evaluating the functional equivalency of certified parts to similar parts made by the car companies.Visit Website
