Only certified MICAR members are eligible to participate in MICAR Plus.
The MICAR Plus program launched jointly by Automotive Recyclers of Michigan (ARM) and the Michigan Automotive Service Association (ASA) is primarily intended to increase the use of recycled parts by the automotive collision and mechanical repair industry. ARM and ASA identified the barriers to using recycled parts and the challenges faced by both the repair and recycling industries.
The MICAR Plus program is designed to create significant business opportunities for both the repair industry and the recycling industry. The program includes:
- Standards that address written warranties, delivery agreements, credit and return policies, parts grading, and other issues that support the increased use of recycled parts.
- Procedures to verify that the standards are met.
- Procedures to quickly and efficiently resolve disagreements and complaints.
- Systems to support increased use of recycled parts.
