Vehicle Scans and the CIECA BMS

Don Elliot of Carfax will present an update on Vehicle Scanning and CIECA’s progress in integrating scans into the BMS for First Notice of Loss, Assignment, Estimates, Attachments, and Repair Orders.
Vehicle Scanning has become an integral part of the entire repair process. Pre-repair and Post-repair scanning have become the norm. The information received from the vehicle scan tool should be saved with the other Repair Order documentation for subsequent review, auditing, and other purposes. Repairers and the industry need a method to retain and exchange this data.

CIECA’s CER (Combined Environmental Reporting) Committee’s goal is to develop the following approach: 
CIECA would develop a standard “reporting interface” based on the federal standard (CROMERR) and the standard of California CERS (California Environmental Reporting) 
The Committee would NOT attempt to address the reporting formats of the individual agencies 
The Committee would develop a standard centered around the EPA Policy Statement on E-Reporting issued September 30, 2013
