Common Definitions of Remanufacturing vocabulary
APRA would like to support you in your daily fight to further develop the remanufacturing business. Together with CLEPA and FIRM, APRA has therefore published a flyer for the remanufacturing business in Europe.

The flyer contains information about the ecological and social advantages of a remanufacturing part including the definition of itself and the definition of a core.

These definitions are supported by all relevant European automotive associations, which is a milestone for our industry.

It has been produced and will be available now.

You are invited to use these flyers for your communication. You can order the flyer (free of charge - max. quantity 100) by sending an email to

We are looking forward to receiving your response to this action.
