SBR decided to host the 2010 springmeeting for EGARA. EGARA wishes to thank the Swedish collegues and friends for taking care and taking such good care of the whole programme.

3 Speakers had very interesting items about safety features and future developments, cooperation between dismantlers and insurance concerning damage repair and the cooperation between SBR and LAGA. The Swedish situation is a good example about the benefits of cooperation.

The EGARA meeting went quick and to the point. Issues were EGARA’s actions in members problems (illegal companies in Poland and dashboards in Denmark), meeting ACEA, The EU working group The chairmans (Paul Fox) presentation in Basel at the IARC, the new statutes and the finances were approved of.

The next day we had a very interesting visit to a dismantler. Remarkable was this company did insurance cars only, the special section for Upullit yourself parts which could lead to a € 200,- extra profit for older ELV’s and the stripes in front of the bridges to help the forklift driver preventing for any damage.

The atmosphere was great, good care was taken for all, the meeting was good and the the presentations and trip were very educative. SBR did a good job. Next meeting is planned in Copenhagen.
