Committee objectives:

  • Determine the content of the BVRLA Technical and Operational Management Forum, which takes place three times a year.
  • Stimulate discussion and debate on issues relating to vehicle service and repair, as well as vehicle and contract administration.
  • Improve communications between vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and BVRLA members.
  • Promote best practice and administration improvements to provide added protection for members under their ‘duty of care’ responsibilities.
  • Discuss and review impending legislation to protect BVRLA members' interests and promote benefit to the supply chain.
  • Continue to develop professional standards in the sector by providing members with technical and customer service support training, development and accreditation opportunities.

I find the TOM forums well prepared and very informative
