Repair info sharing legislation enters parliament

A decade’s worth of lobbying by the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) – and significant efforts by others – has finally resulted in the introduction of legislation that would require automakers to share service and repair data.

The legislation, which entered Australian Parliament as the latest edition of SightGlass News went to press, would level the playing field between authorised dealers and independent workshops, and grant customers access to a more competitive, varied and fairer repair and service industry.

If passed, it will enact a mandatory “motor vehicle service and repair information sharing scheme” and fulfil a government election commitment to act on recommendations that came out of major inquiries and consultation with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
