KMP’s Monica Casalini speaks on ARTI-Italia

KMP’s Monica Casalini speaks on ARTI-Italia

December 12, 2012

ETIRA’s Guide to Clones represents an important standard for both membership and involvement, states Branch Manager Monica Casalini.

KMP Italy Branch Manager Monica Casalini has spoken with The Recycler on KMP’s role within the Italian aftermarket association, emphasising the influence of ETIRA and the 2012 Guide to Clones document released by the European association.

Speaking on the guidance of ETIRA, Casalini commented: “ARTI-Italia was established to support the work that ETIRA placed in our country, and we are very proud that our companies are all part of this European association.

“The Guide to Clones issued by ETIRA [is also very important], it’s a document [to] help everybody to recognise illegal cartridges and in our market there are a lot of them. This document should be read by everyone, from the seller to the end user, not only for the impact on the environment but also on the end user. We really do not know what these illegal cartridges contain.”

Casalini reiterated ARTI-Italia’s membership scheme that require members to adhere to not only the Italian association’s rules and regulations but also that of ETIRA: “Small and bigger Italian companies [are accepted] if they agree to our statute and the code of conduct of ETIRA. We do not have a limitation on the size of the company; we cannot accept companies who sell illegal items.”

With clones and counterfeits being an issue that affects not only the aftermarket but also OEMs, Casalini noted KMP’s approval at ARTI-Italia’s bid to consort with the regional OEMs to tackle known issuesL “We want to move in the same direction, together with the OEMs and other associations like ARTI-Italia. This is the right direction in order to avoid the illegal market of clones […] we can have better success and also protect our environment from illegal cartridges produced with materials not in keeping with European rules.”
