New Vehicle Inventory Database simplifies work of assurance participants and auditors
16 January 2017
Kiwa-PAI and AIC Services have a launched the ‘Vehicle Inventory Database’ (VID), an on-line portal to maintain vehicle records and provide traceability in one place for participants in the AIC trade assurance schemes – FEMAS, FIAS, TASCC and UFAS.
The new portal is free to use by certified scheme participants who wish to make use of it.
“The VID was developed to meet the needs of participants and auditors who wanted a system where vehicles within a fleet could be recorded,” explains AIC Technical Manager Garry Rudd. “We believe this new portal will help with both vehicle identification and traceability.”
This new system will save both time and resource for participants and also allow audits to be more targeted at high risk areas. As the service is linked directly to the Certification Body, Kiwa-PAI, participants will be able to change details quickly and with the minimum of effort.
VID is completely secure and participants will need to log in with their existing AIC portal access details, or contact email@example.com for a new log in if you have not used the portal before.
