Who We Are

We are VRA Certification Ltd, an independent not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. Our sole purpose is to manage and develop the UK’s Vehicle Recycler Certification Scheme.

What We Do

We certify UK-based vehicle recyclers to ensure they conform with the ‘UK Standard for Reclaimed Parts from End-Of-Life Vehicles’. This provides their customers with the confidence that the vehicle recycler operates legally and only markets quality assured reclaimed vehicle parts.

How We Do It

We work with two certification bodies, who scrutinise a vehicle recycler’s policies and procedures, and audit each recycling site annually. This provides an independent, objective assessment of conformance.

Important Update

Minor edits to the standard have been made to include a Category U for some target parts and to clarify some areas of the text.

Version 1.1 (7 August 2020) is the latest version and replaces version 1.0.

A copy of version 1.1 can be downloaded from the Documents page.
