CONCORD, N.H. — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) is urging its New Hampshire members and other stakeholders in the independent auto repair industry to contact New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu to support his signing a new auto repair bill.
New Hampshire House Bill 664 — which requires repair facilities to follow original equipment manufacturers' repair procedures to ensure that vehicles are returned to their owners with the same operational functionality as they had before the collision —was passed recently by the New Hampshire legislature and sent to Mr.Sununu for his signature.
Bob Redding, the ASA's Washington representative, submitted comments during the hearing process stating the association's belief that OEM procedures are the logical ones for repairers to follow.
"ASA does not support the use of OEM parts only," Mr. Redding said. "ASA's interest is in requiring the industry to adhere to a set of repair procedures that ensure the best opportunity for vehicle safety on our highways."
