An amendment proposed for the Ohio budget legislation would exempt insurers from providing notice to customers when non-OEM parts are used in a repair. If enacted, the repair shop would be held responsible for notifying the customer. As most auto insurers’ policies require the use of non-OEM or used parts during the repair of the vehicle, this measure would place the unfair burden of enforcing the insurer’s provisos on the repairer.
