IAAF URGES TRADE TO AIR VIEWS ABOUT ACCESS TO VM PARTS DATA

by

BrianSpratt_200pxThe Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) is urging all suppliers and motor factors to air its experiences on accessing VM parts data.

The rallying call comes as the European Commission (EC), survey assessing the market’s experience of obtaining repair and maintenance information, enters its final days.

Already a hot topic, the IAAF believes that suppliers and motor factors need to give the EC its views and opinions on accessing both data for repairing and servicing vehicles and parts information necessary for cataloguing and cross referencing.

In his last act before retirement, Chief Executive of the IAAF Brian Spratt, believes the aftermarket needs to voice its opinion to give the EC an understanding of the challenges they face.

“It is vitally important that we explain to the European Commission just how detrimental restrictions on accessing parts data are to our businesses,” he adds.

“There are increasing problems with data access and identifying the correct parts for a specific vehicle, meaning factors continue to supply multiple parts to a garage. We need Ricardo and the Commission to understand the problem and enforce the Euro-5 rules.”

The deadline for the EC’s survey is June 27, click here to give your views and opinions.
