The accurate completion of the repair estimate and the provision of safe, proper repairs are the foundation of the supplier number system. The onus is on the supplier to ensure that the invoice submitted is an accurate account of the work completed. If ICBC cannot trust the accuracy of the invoices submitted or the quality of the work performed, ICBC will not allow the supplier to continue to be part of the direct billing system.

ICBC reserves the right to immediately withdraw a supplier account number if the supplier fails to meet or maintain the minimum supplier requirements.​
