Independent aftermarket access to technical and diagnostic
information -- where to from here?
Stuart Charity, Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association
Friday 12 April: 2.00pm -- 3.00pm
Sydney Convention Centre, Bayside 204a
The Choice of Repairer campaign was launched in Australia in 2009 by the
Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) on behalf of
Australia's independent aftermarket. Following an approach by the AAAA,
on 9 March 2011 Federal Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Consumer
Affairs and Competition Policy, David Bradbury asked the Commonwealth
Consumer Affairs Advisory Council to review competition issues around the
sharing of repair information in the automotive industry. Their final report was
released on 20 December 2012 and is available at http://ccaac.gov.au/.
This seminar will provide the most up to date information on the timelines
and progress towards the development of an industry code of practice in
Australia to ensure that independent repairers gain effective and timely
access to all the information and tools needed to effectively repair and
maintain today's technically advanced vehicles. It will also provide an update
on key developments in Europe and North America. This is your opportunity
to get the latest information on this critical industry issue and is an event not
to be missed.
