RMI Standards and Certification (RMISC) has received full accreditation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to certify against BS 10125, the replacement for PAS125 which is to be withdrawn at the end of 2015.

RMISC, a subsidiary company of the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI), is now able to carry out audits and certify bodyshops that meet the Standard, issuing the Ri-Mark logo for them to demonstrate their compliance with BS 10125 .

Stuart James, RMISC Director said, “We are delighted to have received accreditation from UKAS to provide BS 10125 certification to the bodyshop sector.  It has always been our intention to make the standards accessible to all bodyshops, irrespective of their size and nature.  RMISC was set up with the aim of providing cost-effective, high-quality services to the motor industry .”

  • RMI Standards and Certification (RMISC) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Retail Motor Industry Federation.  It was established in 2011 to provide certification services to the motor industry and beyond.  As well as being accredited by UKAS to certify to BS10125, the company has also been accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry as an Approved Assessment Centre.

  • The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.  Accreditation by UKAS demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capability of these evaluators.

  • BS 10125:2014 has been transitioned from the pre-existing standard PAS 125 which was first published in 2006.  It was defined as the industry agreed technical specification for the process of vehicle body repair and it provided body-shops the processes and procedures directly related to the safe repair of accident damaged vehicles. The success of the standard has judged it suitable to make the changeover to a full British Standard.
