CAR (Columbia Approved Resources) Audit
Quality standards have become extremely important in recent years. The automotive and other durable goods industries are much more aware of the importance of maintaining a high level of quality within their supplier Tiers. Columbia Chemical has developed an audit that incorporates this increased level of quality for all OEMs and their standards. The CAR, or Columbia Approved Resources, audit is completed on a quarterly basis and requires all approved applicators to fulfill the requirements in order to maintain the CAR approval. The approved applicators will be put on a list that shall be made available to the OEMs as well as the Tier 1 suppliers. CAR approved applicators are set apart from other applicators. The designation of a CAR approval equates to high quality and constant improvement.
