Vehicle Diagnostic Scanning
Scope & Objectives
The SCAN Committee will focus on the potential and process of:
To incorporate all potential business entities in the business processes
To work with the group to respond to group goals and timelines
To provide an open working relationship with the Committee within the antitrust guidelines
To coordinate all standards development with STAR and related organizations
The purpose of this committee is to define business information passing between parties as it relates to the collision repair and related industries. We are asking for responses and feedback from the industry at-large relative to the work the committee has done to date, and to emphasize the importance of continued work in this area.
The first objective will be to develop a single focus of the committee’s scope, objectives and goals. It is evident that a framework has already begun that can drive future progress, and success will be dependent upon an expanded active participation.
At the first scanned processes was the objective to capture scan information both before and after the repair. This was later expanded to capture interim scans, these may be required for the proper repair process.
Scanning has been and continues to be, and industry discussion and remains an open issue on when to scan and payment for the scans. These issues are not within the scope of this committee.
CIECA’s SCAN Committee’s goal is to develop and maintain messaging standards and codes aimed at receiving and recording repair related scans for after the accident and before repair, to interim steps in the repair process, and the final scan upon repair completion.
To recognize authorizations can come from the insurance company and/or the owner. To accommodate every source for the authorization, that varies in the industry. Recognizing it is required by some insurance companies for their authorization.
The SCAN standards will be able to communicate images, XML records, JSON records, pdf's, or CSV (comma-separated values) records to accommodate the various scan tools. To accommodate all sources of scans that can be from the repair facility, 3rd party vendors, appraisers, adjustors, dealerships, the OEMs and even from the vehicle.
