What you need to know about QAP.

The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the adaptive mobility equipment industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality. The program was developed to elevate the level of dealer performance to reliably meet consumers’ transportation needs in the safest manner possible.

The QAP designation is indicative of enhanced vehicle modification and adaptive equipment installation consistent with the highest industry standards. NMEDA Dealers are required to follow guidelines written in accordance with motor vehicle safety standards, a professionally managed dynamic and static testing program and proven quality control practices that advocate the highest level of performance and safety.

QAP Requirements:

All NMEDA accredited dealers participate in the QAP and are held to extremely high standards for consumer safety and product quality. In order to uphold these standards, dealers are required to:

  • Maintain a NMEDA approved Quality Control Manual that defines processes affecting quality and focuses on customer satisfaction and compliance to applicable industry and regulatory standards while fostering continuous improvement opportunities on product and services offered.
  • Maintain Product, and Completed Operations, and Garage Keepers insurance for liability purposes and to protect the consumer and dealer.
  • Have certified welders (or equivalent in Canada) if they perform structural modifications to vehicles to assure welds and modifications meet or exceed industry standards.
  • Have technicians who are certified for the equipment they sell, install and service.
  • Maintain detailed records of all adaptive work for at least seven years that are specific to a customer/vehicle for traceability and future reference.
  • Undergo an inspection/audit process at least annually by an independent Audit Firm to ensure compliance to the QAP Rules, NMEDA Guidelines, certain aspects of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and “Make Inoperative” mandates as required.
