I-Car publishes best practice HV disconnecting guide

The best practice document also includes an HV safety protocol form used to document inspections and tests.

I-Car has released an electric vehicle best practice guide for a high-voltage disconnecting procedure. The comprehensive document is designed to complement OEM repair procedures, providing clear guidance for technicians in this extremely important area of EV repair, according to Jeff Peevy, vice president, technical products, programs & services for I-Car.

“As EV repairs are becoming more commonplace, with more than 100 makes and models either in production or in various stages of development, I-Car used OEM repair procedures to create a complementary document that guides a consistent disconnecting procedure process, in hopes to eliminate any confusion in what can be a dangerous repair process,” said Peevy. “We’re bringing clarity and guidance to keep technicians safe and to minimize risks and errors for any technician, working on any EV vehicle, at any shop or location in the industry.”

“This disconnecting procedure document is available to everyone in the industry,” said Dirk Fuchs, director, technical programs & services for I-Car. “This document, however, does not replace OEM repair procedures in any way but supports them. We want to keep collision repair staff safe and minimize risks and mistakes.”

The best practice document also includes an HV safety protocol form used to document inspections and tests, and also HV disconnecting procedure status cards.
