Key Documents

The Government has committed to supporting appropriate commercial dealing and competition in the new car retail supply chain for the benefit of both small businesses and consumers. This includes considering the design of a mandatory scheme for access to motor vehicle service and repair information. This scheme would provide a level playing field in the sector and allow consumers to have their vehicles safely repaired by the repairer of their choice. The purpose of this consultation is to gauge the suitability of possible elements of a mandatory scheme for the sharing of motor vehicle service and repair information and the establishment of a Service and Repair Information Sharing Advisory Committee. Subject to the outcome of consultation on these elements, the Government intends to implement a scheme in 2019. This implementation would include a further period of public consultation on the full detail of provisions to be included in the scheme.
