APRA is divided into geographical regions and technical divisions. Each serves to increase the availability of technical knowledge within a particular product line and to promote its parts.

An important activity of each division is the annual meeting. Here, remanufacturers meet with customers and suppliers to exchange information on market developments as well as technical and management issues.
These divisions also provide an open forum in which remanufacturers can associate with other industry members to improve their own remanufacturing expertise and expand their product knowledge.
Each year, the European Division organises a symposium [2004 Prag, 2005 Amsterdam, 2006 Warsaw, 2007 Amsterdam, 2008 Warsaw, 2009 Amsterdam], workshop for the different divisions and company visits. Every second year, it organises an exhibition together with RAI Netherlands and F.I.R.M. (European Engine Remanufacturer and Rebuilder Association). Additionally APRA Europe began to organise an internal exposition in 2008 (Warsaw) and continues with another one in 2010 (Budapest).
APRA also maintains two advisory councils. These represent manufacturers supplying the remanufacturing industry and companies that supply cores.
