OEM REPAIR INFORMATION – DIRECT FROM THE AUTO MANUFACTURERS
The Canadian Automotive Service Information Standard (CASIS) provides a framework for Canadian automobile manufacturers to share their service and repair information with the automotive aftermarket industry on a level equivalent to that of their authorized dealers.
OEM diagnostic and repair information, vehicle software updates and tools are available to any service provider in Canada by creating an account on the respective manufacturer’s technical information website. Each manufacturer’s website functions independently. The subscription fee, terms and method of locating information varies from one to another.
The CASIS is an historic, voluntary agreement, signed by all Canadian automakers in September 2009. Full implementation was completed on or before May 1, 2010. The CASIS Task Force and sub-committees are populated by representatives of the auto manufacturers and the aftermarket auto service industry.
