The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) announced today that its second standards release of the year, the 2022R2, will be available to members on Wednesday, October 19, 2022.
A CIECAST Technical Series webinar will be held on Thursday, October 20 to discuss the updates made to the 2022R2. The Architecture Committee will also provide an in-depth analysis of the CIECA API Standards (CAPIS) and how they will be structured. The webinar will take place at 11 am PT/1 pm CT/2 pm ET.
“CIECA’s Architecture Committee has completed the foundational analysis for CIECA’S next generation of JSON-based CIECA API Standards (CAPIS),” said Paulette Reed, CIECA’s technical project manager. “The committee will share details about its findings and talk about how the new JSON Standards will be structured.”
The Architecture Committee, chaired by Dan Webster, principal architect, IT Enterprise, Enlyte, held two face-to-face meetings to prepare for this release. One took place at Car-Part.com’s office in Kentucky and the other was held in St. Charles, MO, following the CIECA CONNEX Conference.
The committee publishes updated collision industry standards twice a year. Prior to the release, the Architecture committee will hold a Quality Assurance (QA) virtual meeting on October 5 to review the changes to the BMS, code list, instance documents and schemas; verify they meet the Architecture guidelines; validate spelling; and ensure all changes to the BMS are in the schema.
