ASA publishes updated ‘Not-Included Operations’ charts

Collision tool addresses new replacement installation

North Richland Hill, Texas—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has released the latest update to its “Not-Included Operations” charts. The publication is available free to the industry and designed to ensure collision repairers consider all of the possible operations when they write an estimate. The title, “Reference Chart of Not-Included Operations When Installing New Replacement Parts,” is available on the ASA website and serves as a quick summary of general, not-included operations, and should be used in addition to procedure pages supplied by individual information providers.

“ASA is committed to providing the industry with the tools and resources they need to seek reimbursement for the steps necessary to properly repair a vehicle,” said Dan Risley, ASA president. “The ASA Not-Included Charts are an easy to use guide that helps the estimator accurately document all the necessary labor operations for the three major estimating systems.”

In addition, Tony Molla, ASA vice president, said, “AudaExplore, CCC Information Services and Mitchell have all reviewed the documents in cooperation with the ASA Collision Operations Committee, and we sincerely appreciate their assistance. We welcome every opportunity to work together with our members and corporate partners to continue to provide useful information that benefits the entire industry.”

The publication is available in a PDF format for ASA member-shops and the industry at under Free Industry Tools and Resources.
