IGA: SERMI Scheme enrolment open

Enrolment for the Security-related Repair Maintenance Information (SERMI) scheme being run by the IGA is now open. All UK Independent Operators (IO’s) and Remote Service Suppliers (RSS) are being invited to register prior to its full implementation on 1 October 2023.

IGA Chief Executive Stuart James said: “We are delighted to announce the enrolment opening for the SERMI scheme. This initiative reflects our commitment to elevating the standards and reputation of the independent garage sector in the UK. We encourage all Independent Garages and Remote Service Suppliers to seize this opportunity and join us on this transformative journey.”

In the UK, obtaining a SERMI certificate will also require applying to RMI Standards & Certification. Essential documents, including a basic DBS check for the business owner and at least one technician, form part of the process.

Direct debits related to SERMI will not start until the scheme goes live.
