BAR Advisory Group

The BAR Advisory Group was established by the Department of Consumer Affairs and BAR to increase the level of communication between BAR, the automotive repair industry, and stakeholders. This voluntary membership group is balanced to represent public, industry, and consumers. The advisory group is an informal assembly that meets regularly to provide input to the Chief on BAR program issues.
