Assistant Treasurer Hon. Michael Sukkar has announced the forthcoming of a new Mandatory Data Sharing Law for the automotive repair and service sector in an open letter addressed to Australia's independent automotive repairers.
The announcement is also a huge moment for the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA) who has long championed the Choice of Repairer campaign on behalf of their members and the wider industry. The Choice of Repairer campaign has increased community awareness around consumers right to choose their repairer, and their new car warranty and servicing rights. They have now made real progress on Mandatory Data Sharing too. This announcement has been a long road and is the culmination of great efforts by the AAAA to push for Government action.
