7.      CRA Members must comply to the CRA Code of Conduct that is based on integrity, fairness, honesty, trustworthiness, respect, openness, and conduct their business in line with the Consumer Protection Act.

8.      CRA Members are subject to an annual audit to guarantee compliance with the CRA Safety Through Standards processes and philosophy.

9.      CRA Members have multiple factory approvals and OEM certifications which means our members are trained experts. They research and confirm the proper procedures to repair your vehicle, every time.

10.  CRA Members are committed to service excellence and therefore have given you, the customer, the right to formally address complaints via an independent online complaint process to reduce conflict and expedite complaint resolution and disputes.
