Cleveland, Ohio — The U.S.-based Collision Industry Conference has decided on a new “golden rule” by which the organization will operate following the organization’s meeting on Thursday.
The rule aims to help collision repairers and other third-party sources get better access to data from application providers. The rule states, “Application providers should allow end-users unfettered access to their own business data. Application providers should not limit access to data made available to the end-user, attempt to control or restrict data flow provided or generated by the end-user to the end-users’ partners of choice.”
The decision was made following a 30-minute panel discussion when approval was passed unanimously by members.
The rule joins five other “golden rules” that the CIC Data Access, Privacy and Security Committee have adopted.
