ECG has a long-standing partnership with the closest the North-American market has to an equivalent organisation. The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), which represents not just outbound but also inbound logistics, also counts the car manufacturers among its members and is based in Detroit. The aim of the two organisations is to work closely on standardisation on any areas of common interest and, in particular, to focus on any issues which might lead to global standards. In this regard the first joint document was the Global Damage Codes project which is now included in the M-22 document entitled "Finished Vehicle Logistics Transport Damage Reporting". The latest version of this document is currently under development and will also include a new chapter on vehicle inspection standards.
