CIECA To Detail New Repair Standard During April 2022 Webinar

The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) will host a CIECAST webinar as part of its Technical Series on 28 April at 11am PST. The webinar agenda includes an overview of the newly released 2022R1 standard, an update on CIECA’s API Standards (CAPIS) initiative and the technical tools used, and information about the CIECA Simplified standards project.

Paulette Reed, CIECA’s Technical Project Manager, will discuss the latest changes to CIECA Standards, which are included in 2022R1.

Reed said the focus of 2022R1 is to simplify CIECA’s technical documentation. In addition to spell-checking documents, correcting hyperlinks and creating new test instances, there is a new code list value for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) provided by CIECA’s Emerging Technology Committee.

Dan Webster, Principal Architect IT Enterprise at Mitchell International and the Chairman of CIECA’s Architecture Committee, will provide an update on the CAPIS initiative to create JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) Standards for the collision industry.

Andy Bober, a software engineer at Entegral, and Mike Hastings, Product Manager at, will talk about specific tools used for the project. Both are members of CIECA’s Architecture Committee.

Hastings will demonstrate the CAPIS Vehicle VIN Information Request in Stoplight Studio, while Bober will talk about the custom tooling CIECA uses to automate testing and bundling the new CAPIS JSON Standards.

Paul Barry, CIECA’s Executive Director, will also share information about the CIECA Simplified standards project, which aims to offer standards to meet the needs of CIECA’s membership and the industry.

“CIECA recognises that we have a very diverse customer base with wide variations in skill, knowledge and experience,” Barry said. “CIECA Standards today can be difficult for new users to understand and use. We need to make our products accessible to all skill levels and offer products that meet the needs of our membership and address the gaps in the industry.”
