On 10 August 2017, MTAA welcomed the release of the ACCC New Car Retailing Market Study Interim Report which recommended a mandated scheme to allow the nation’s mechanical and motor body repairers fair and reasonable access to repair information. It also acknowledged the significant advocacy, representation and leadership MTAA and Members have provided on behalf the automotive industry.
MTAA CEO Richard Dudley said the recommendation of a mandated scheme recognised MTAA and members’ unique understanding of a highly complex issue by harnessing knowledge from all of its member constituents.
MTAA facilitated the original heads of agreement with Government and has spent the past two years investigating improvements, gathering detailed information on specific problems and trying to facilitate further enhancements.
