Canadian Automotive Service Information Standard (CASIS)A Voluntary Solution to Automotive Aftermarket Access to Automotive Service and Repair Information, Equipment and TrainingSeptember 29th, 2009


Who is Involved in the CASIS?

  • Canada’s auto manufacturers, importers, and distributors as represented by:- the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers of Canada (AIAMC)- the Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers’ Association (CVMA)(AIAMC/CVMA represent the companies that sell over 99% of the new vehicles in Canada annually)
  • Canada’s automotive service and repair industry as represented by:- the National Automotive Trades Association(NATA is a national organization whose members have over 5,000 individual auto service and repair shops across Canada)



Leading up to the CASIS Development

  • January 2009: NDP MP Brian Masse’s Private Member’s Bill C-273 was drawn in the “lottery” system and had first reading. Second Reading on May 13th, 2009 during which Parliament voted 248-17 in favour of referring the Bill to the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology for its consideration
  • April 14th, 2009: Minister of Industry, Tony Clement wrote to the entire automotive industry encouraging the development of a voluntary solution for the access to service and repair information issue
  • NATA organized a meeting with AIAMC, CVMA and the Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA) as well as representatives from Industry Canada, Environment Canada and the Competition Bureau on April 29th to determine if the development of a voluntary solution based on the U.S. NASTF model was possible



Leading up to CASIS Development

  • A Letter of Intent was ultimately signed by AIAMC, CVMA and NATA on May 1st, 2009 committing to the development of a voluntary agreement by September 30th, with implementation by all manufacturers by May 2010.



Industry’s Commitment - A National Solution

  • CASIS was signed September 29th 2009 at a press conference with the Minister of Industry



How will CASIS be Implemented?

  • All vehicle manufacturers will implement the provisions of CASIS no later than May 1st, 2010 – however, some companies are already making this information available today and others will be implementing well in advance of that date
  • The CASIS Agreement can be amended at any time through mutual consent of the parties
  • The CASIS will be implemented on a national basis and will provide access to OEM information and tools to any service provider regardless of association affiliation



Voluntary Vs. Legislation

  • All manufacturers signed letters of commitment, given to Minister of Industry
  • Any new entrants to the market will join one of the two OEM associations; a requirement of joining will be to endorse and comply with the CASIS
  • History of successful voluntary agreements (more than two dozen to date)
  • If unsuccessful, legislation will surely follow



Voluntary Vs. Legislation

  • Since CASIS announcement:
  • Canadian Automobile Dealers’ Association (CADA) endorses the CASIS in press release
  • CASIS Task Force issues first “Interpretation Guideline”
  • Meetings and communications with AIA resulted in their endorsement of the CASIS



Voluntary Vs. Legislation

  • Since CASIS announcement:
  • October 28, 2009:AIA, NATA, CVMA and AIAMC testify before Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science & Technology re: Bill C-273 (“Right to Repair”)
  • All parties’ presentations declare legislation unnecessary due to voluntary agreement (CASIS)
  • Bill C-273’s author, MP Brian Masse tables motion that the bill proceed no further. Vote = unanimous, motion carried!



Next steps

  • Further Interpretation Guidelines as required
  • Work on Canadian equivalent to SDRM
  • Full implementation by May 1, 2010
  • Educate Industry on use of OEM technical information sites
