At the end of March 2021, the German Commission for Paint and Bodywork Repair passed and subsequently published the document on the significance of the delivery condition from bodywork to paint in German and English as well as a fundamentally revised paint guideline. Afterwards, the AZT repeatedly received requests for an English edition of the paint guideline.
In order to meet the interest and to support the international claims and repair market, AZT has therefore now translated the paint guideline based on the German version. After correction loops with the Working Group on Automotive Refinish Coatings of the Association of the German Paint and Printing Ink Industry (VdL) and the German Federal Association for Color Design & Protection of Structure (Bundesverband Farbe Gestaltung Bautenschutz) with its Nationwide Expert Group Vehicle Painting (Bundesfachgruppe Fahrzeuglackierer – BFL), the English version of the paint guideline can now be made available to all interested parties. At the same time, all members of the German Commission for Paint and Bodywork Repair will also receive the English document for further use.
Both the German and English versions of the paint guideline, as well as all other documents of the German Commission for Paint and Bodywork Repair, can be downloaded free of charge from the download area (see https://azt-automotive.com/de/downloads → „Beschlüsse der Deutschen Kommission für Lack und Karosserieinstandsetzung“). In addition, the English versions are also available at https://azt-automotive.com/en/downloads → “Resolutions of the German Commission for Paint and Bodywork Repair”.
