Avicar certificates for bodywork companies.

Are you interested in obtaining the status of “Authorised Repairer” from your insurance companies? This can be done by obtaining the AVICAR certificate. Car repair companies that under the convention, are affiliated to the insurance companies, must commission the conduct of an audit to check whether or not certain requirements are met. The experts of Vinçotte will be happy to help you in this regard.

In the course of the audit, an objective verification is made of whether your bodywork company satisfies the specified criteria, which include both administrative and equipment requirements. An AVICAR certificate will be awarded to your company for a period of one year when it satisfies all the requirements. A proposal will be made to your company to renew the certificate three months before it expires.

When you engage Vinçotte, we guarantee the complete neutrality of the audit procedure, in view of our totally independent status.

With an AVICAR certificate, you have the option to operate as an authorised repairer with your chosen insurance companies, provided you satisfy certain minimum criteria. You may display your certificate during the entire validity period and also publish the audit report. The AVICAR system is also based on simple and transparent general regulations that clearly define each part of the certification procedure.


The audit procedure and the requirements relating thereto consist on the one hand of administrative and quality criteria, and on the other hand, criteria based on the statutory obligations applicable to your company. In this manner, the AVICAR certificate also gives you an added value in terms of awareness concerning certain important obligations deriving from the environmental and safety regulations.

Norms and Standards

The audit procedure is based on the AVICAR checklist, which takes into account the requirements laid down by insurance companies. In this manner, each bodywork company that holds an AVICAR certificate will be covered under the service policy of the insurance companies and will be recognised by such companies as an operator who is reliable and maintains high quality.

The audit is conducted as per the procedure described in the general regulations, and does not require sophisticated quality programs, elaborate organisational structures or complex installations. As a result, even small companies with a high level of quality can, in practice, obtain an AVICAR certificate without having to make any major investments. In principle, large infrastructures supported by a high-quality system, can easily satisfy the requirements of the AVICAR system.
