The Aftermarket Policy WG is a group of aftermarket executives who discuss commercial business and legislative issues and actions. It provides a forum for automotive executives to identify and address strategic issues, share best practices and create practical tools for developing sound business practices in the aftermarket.

Aftermarket executives meet at the CLEPA Aftermarket Forum (CAF) three times a year and at a common business days with FIGIEFA twice a year. CLEPA participates in meetings of the German Associations VDA and VREI and we have regular information exchange with ACEA. In March 2017 the annual CLEPA Aftermarket Conference will take place in Brussels, with a networking event the evening before.
