How to Get DTI Accreditation For Your Car Repair Shop

For the benefit of clients and customers, operators of repair shops and service providers must be accredited by the Department of Trade and Industry.

With an accreditation, customers are more encouraged to patronize service not only for skills and competence of staff in the shop, but also for protection in case of unforeseen circumstances such as accidents and delivery delays.

There are four main categories for an accredited repair service provider:

  • Automotive and Heavy Equipment
  • Engine and Engineering Works and Machine Shops
  • Electronics, Electrical, Airconditioning, and Refrigeration Service and Repairs
  • Office and Data Processing Equipment
