After 18 months, ACCC have released their final report of the market study into the new car retailing industry. MTAA played a key role in advocating for the business interests of MTAA member associations business members across the automotive industry.
MTAA and State and Territory Member Associations advocated strongly for the ACCC to:
- Confirm the impact and identify a solution to ensure fair and reasonable access and use of technical and repair information for independent mechanical and motor body repairers.
- Examine concerns surrounding proposed changes to Australian Consumer Law definitions of major and minor faults, among other issues.
MTAA CEO, Richard Dudley, said the Federation and State and Territory Association Members were pleased the ACCC final report has largely addressed these critical issues and called on the Federal Government to support the recommendations and for Government and Industry to get on with implementation.
MTAA are continuing the pressure on government to deliver on the report’s recommendations.
