Bosch is now part of the Certified Automotive Parts Association’s (CAPA) Tier 1 Replacement Parts Verification Program. CAPA, a nonprofit standard-setting and certification organization, has long been instrumental in ensuring high-quality automotive crash parts. 

Historically, the distinction between Tier 1 replacement parts and aftermarket parts has been blurred, posing challenges in identifying parts comparable to original car company (CCO) or car company service (CCS) parts. CAPA's Tier 1 Verification Program addresses this issue by ensuring Tier 1 Verified replacement parts are manufactured using the same factory, tooling, materials and processes as the CCO or CCS parts. This ensures a level of quality and compliance with federal regulations that was previously uncertain.

"We’re thrilled to add an esteemed manufacturer like Bosch to the CAPA Tier 1 Verification Program," said Clark Plucinski, chairman of the CAPA Board of Directors. "The demand has never been higher in the repair industry for high-quality replacement sensors. CAPA is eager to begin answering that call with its Tier 1 Verified ultrasonic parking sensors."

For more than three decades, CAPA has provided a comprehensive certification program to identify high-quality replacement parts. The introduction of the Tier 1 Verification Program is a natural extension of CAPA's efforts, aiming to include top-tier suppliers like Bosch.

Bosch's approval to join the program allows it to begin submitting its ultrasonic parking sensors for verification. These verified parts will be distinguished by the CAPA Tier1 Verified label and announced in CAPA’s weekly updates. This development is not just a win for Bosch but also for the automotive repair industry and consumers, who can now have greater confidence in the quality and compliance of replacement parts used in vehicle repairs.
