Set up by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry, CSS was established because of the increasing complexity of the makeup of cars and the level of expertise that is required to repair them. CSS reassures consumers that specific repairers have the ability to structurally repair vehicles to the highest standard.
Speaking at the presentation of the CSS accreditation to 28 bodyshops, he said "These bodyshops should be proud of their accomplishment. Their willingness to raise the standard of repairs within the Industry demonstrates the passion and pride they have in their personnel and their business and, most importantly, in their ability to repair crashed vehicles safely and to the highest quality."
He also commended the efforts of the RSA for their continued focus on road safety.
