BSI announce changes to senior leadership team
The British Standards Institution (BSI) has appointed Dean Lander, Head of Repair Sector Services at Thatcham Research, as Chair of its committee on Automotive Services (SVS/20).
The Committee oversees the ongoing maintenance of BS 10125, the British Standard which specifies the best approach to conducting consistently safe, high-quality repairs on accident damaged vehicles.
On behalf of the UK National Standards Body (NSB), Lander will help lead the Committee for the preparation of all British Standards in the field of automotive services.
Commenting on his appointment, he said: “I am excited to help steer the standard through a time when repair is being so affected by technological change, both on vehicles and in repair processes. With ADAS, connectivity and electrification of the drivetrain becoming an ever presence on the latest volume cars, BS 10125 must keep pace with the impacts on safe repair processes.
“Having been engaged since the development of BSI’s PAS 125 and its evolution to BS10125, I am proud to have been nominated to chair the SVS/20 Committee.”
