Repair info sharing law passes Lower House, Senate debate and vote expected in June

repair info sharing bill

The House of Representatives has unanimously passed the bill to mandate repair information sharing, with the law now expected to enter the Senate during June.

Bipartisan support in the Lower House for the legislation bodes well and speeches from individual Members of Parliament acknowledged input from independent workshop owners in their constituencies.

This is a significant win for the independent auto repair sector and for the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) that has campaigned tirelessly on this topic for more than 12 years.

All going well in the Senate, the start date for mandatory information sharing will be 1 July 2022 and will apply to all passenger vehicles manufactured from 2002 onwards.
