Dear Auction Member,

The National Certification Standard (NCS) is a simple, streamlined and consistent system of certifying vehicle quality that is fair to all involved in remarketing. NCS represents an industry consensus and has received the endorsement of IARA.

The NCS offers three levels — Platinum, Gold, and Silver — to handle the needs of a broad range of vehicle types. The NCS takes a minimal investment of time for both training and utilization.

The concise list of 48 essential criteria provides in clear, straightforward language a system that addresses vehicle selection and requirements for inspection, reconditioning, and marketing.

NCS promotes and builds greater understanding, trust and confidence among auctions, buyers, and sellers — which translates into increased benefits for all in the auto auction industry.

NAAA Certified means better business practices for better business success!
