ARA Interchange Committee Notes

This standard is intended to promote commerce in used automotive parts and as a guide for interchange development. The Automotive Recycling Association's goal is to create a unified description of used parts, thereby promoting all forms of commerce in automotive recycling. This standard is designed to be used across all electro
nic platforms and computer systems.

To reach this goal all parties selling, buying and installing used parts need the common language represented by this standard. Those developing products, services, interchange or evaluations containing used parts are encouraged to use the standard. The ARA has created this standard as an inclusive, cooperative effort between everyone interested in used automotive parts, interchange standards and recycling
