Established in 1969, Thatcham Research is a UK-based ‘not for profit’ research centre specialising in vehicle safety, security and repair.
As a founder member of the International Council for Automobile Repairs (RCAR) and a member of the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) since 2004, Thatcham Research work closely with vehicle manufacturers and industry bodies to positively influence vehicle design, and to establish safe and appropriate repair methods in their Repair Technology Centre.
Repairers and assessors can access these methods via the escribe portal.
Thatcham escribe was established in 2013 to oversee the development of escribe for the Australian and New Zealand markets, and to provide local product support.
As a result of regular local market analysis and the implementation of a targeted repair research program, escribe currently lists methods for over 80% of the vehicles repaired in Australia.
