IAAF CONFERENCE: WILLIAMSON’S WARNINGS ON BREXIT AND ACCESS TO INFORMATION

The Chief Executive of the IAAF has opened the annual conference with warnings on a number of industry topics including the EU negotiations and VMs infringing on independent garage’s  right to repair.

On the subject of Brexit she warned: “If the deal is rejected the we will all be entering into the unknown”

Speaking about access to information, Williamson noted that several vehicle manufacturers have already deleted the OBD port, despite being obliged to keep it. She emphasised how keeping ‘three priorities’ on direct access to data as a live issue in the European Parliament by working with other trade organisations such as FIGEFA.

She noted that ‘many traditional parts won’t exist in the future’, adding that new entrant to the market such as Dyson and the rise of Chinese brands will be a significant challenge for the VMs. She concluded: “We will adapt and find new ways to find and service the vehicles of tomorrow”.

The conference continues.
