IAAF launches “myth-busting” Right to Repair campaign

Myth-busting the rights and freedoms of independent repairers in servicing and repairing vehicles is the focus of a new campaign from the IAAF.

Launched at the UK Garage and Bodyshop Event, the Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation campaign will address widespread misconceptions to support the independent garage and, therefore, motorists.

It will focus particularly on the updated Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Order (MV-BEO).

IAAF’s campaign will tackle these myths head-on such as: work during the warranty period, spare parts, the use of tools and equipment, and digital service records, to name a few.

This is because, the body said, this access should be free of charge, though some manufacturers may impose an administration registration fee.

“Our new campaign is essential in dispelling the misconceptions that hinder the independent aftermarket and will form part of our ongoing ‘Right to Repair’ initiative,” said Mark Field, IAAF chief executive.

“By providing clear and accurate information, in a format that is easily digestible and accessible for its intended audience, we will champion the rights of the independent aftermarket and the competitive choice for motorists.”
