Independent garage rep Stuart James has renewed calls for vehicle assemblers to release crucial vehicle security information to independent garages.

James, who heads up the Independent Garage Association, used a recent conference at the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators to bang the drum for independents.

Speaking to an audience of 200 delegates, he played down the risk of a hike in car crime resulting from security data ending up in the wrong hands.

“The process being developed will enable the detection of crimes extremely quickly,” he said.

He explained that the details of technicians who apply to access vehicle assembler security data will be held in a Technicians Database as a logged entry of their actions.

The database will also allow the garage to log in to a special section of VA websites housing security data, logging their actions as they do so.

It is in this way that the IGA hopes to eliminate any risk to VAs posting their security data online.
