The Automobile Repair & Regulatory Council (A.R.R.C.) is an organization responsible for the development and passage into second reading of The Collision Repair Standards Act (Bill 186). This is an Ontario legislative initiative designed to "level the playing" field within the automobile collision appraisal and repair industry. Under that proposed law, collision repair shops would need to meet industry standards for their work and business operations including equipment to gain mandatory certification. Staff would need adequate training and shops would face inspections.

The legislation would have also amended the Insurance Act to require all collision repairs be conducted at a certified shop of the consumer’s choice. Insurers currently direct collision repairs to preferred shops to reduce costs and the risk of shoddy work.

When passed into legislation, it is expected Bill 186 will ensure a high standard of competence, accountability, and environmental protection is met in not only the collision repair and appraisal industry, but also in the automobile restoration industry.
