Australia moves on mandate to share repair information
Australia is moving to give independent aftermarket service providers access to repair and service information.
In late March, the Australian Parliament introduced legislation to mandate access to motor vehicle service and repair information.
The legislation, which has yet to be enacted into law, but is expected to.
It fulfils a government election commitment to act on a recommendation from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for a mandatory scheme, compelling car manufacturers to share technical service and repair information with all Australian repairers.
