After nearly a decade of campaigning by the AAAA, the Federal Government has announced intentions to introduce The Motor Vehicle Service and Repair Information Sharing Scheme to Parliament in early 2021 (

The new law will make it illegal for car companies to withhold information from qualified independent mechanics – keeping the cost of replacement parts, vehicle maintenance and repair affordable.

There is a short consultation period as previously outlined by the Federal Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar, who has been the prime mover behind introducing the law. That consultation will finish at the end of January with the law expected to come into effect soon afterwards.
