Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act ensures equal access to auto repair data for independent repair shops
The battle over access to vehicle repair information has been playing out in the court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, United States over the last few years and has gained further momentum in the past year. The commonwealth has delayed implementing the proposed law, which would require motor vehicle owners and independent repairers to get expanded access to vehicle maintenance and repair data, until a final ruling from the US District Court judge for the District of Massachusetts, whose decision remains pending. The outcome of the case is expected to have wide-ranging implications for the aftermarket.
On a national level, the automotive Right to Repair movement in the US gained traction on 3 February, 2022 as US Representative Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), a senior member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, introduced the Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act that ensures equal access to auto repair data for independent repair shops. If passed, the legislation would preserve consumer access to high-quality, affordable vehicle repair by ensuring that, as vehicles continue to become more technologically advanced, vehicle owners and independent repair shops have equal access to repair and maintenance tools and data as car companies and licensed dealerships.
