OEM Legislation to Support
To provide some background, Section 155.29 of the Illinois Insurance Code, which has been law since 1990, allows for the use of non-OEM repair parts with proper disclosures, and Title 50, Section 919.80(d)(5)(C) of the Illinois Administrative Code requires repair parts to be “at least equal in like kind and quality”; however, OEM repair procedures remain unaddressed in Illinois law.
The ultimate goal of an amendment to House Bill 3133 is to better protect repair shops utilizing OEM procedures in Illinois.
