Each year the MTAA, through its member associations and ASSCSA, receives numerous concerns and complaints of cases of unfair franchising arrangements, miss use of market power, anti-competitive conduct and failure to address fuel theft.

MTAA is collecting evidence to advocate to Government for a review of the Franchising Code so that it can better reflect the requirements of automotive businesses (including those that retail fuel) or potentially be replaced with legislative instruments that do.

Please use the link below to send to MTAA information regarding unfair franchising arrangements:

  • Business name.
  • What within your franchising agreement unfairly poses restrictions on your business?
  • What actions are franchisors undertaking that unfairly impose restrictions on your ability to conduct work and your business profitability?

MTAA and ASSCSA also urges individual fuel retailers to also provide evidence of unfair and anti-competitive restrictions on franchising arrangements to their individual state motor trades association or automotive chamber of commerce, in addition to reporting the issue using the link below.
