IAAF launches mythbusting campaign at UK Garage and Bodyshop Event

The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) is launching an innovative mythbusting campaign at the UK Garage and Bodyshop Event, seeking to clarify the rights and freedoms of independent repairers in servicing and repairing vehicles, particularly in the context of the updated Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Order (MV-BEO).

As part of its commitment to protecting the rights of the independent aftermarket, IAAF, across digital marketing platforms, is addressing widespread misconceptions to support, first and foremost, the independent garage, and secondly, the motorist.

Mythbusting with the IAAF

IAAF’s campaign will tackle these myths head-on, providing clear and accurate information. This includes myths around: work during the warranty period, spare parts, the use of tools and equipment, and digital service records, to name a few.

This access should be free of charge, though some manufacturers may impose an administration registration fee.

Mythbusting with the IAAF

Mark Field, Chief Executive of IAAF, commented: “Our new mythbusting campaign is essential in dispelling the misconceptions that hinder the independent aftermarket and will form part of our ongoing ‘Right to Repair’ initiative.

“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.”

The IAAF encourages all industry professionals and vehicle owners to follow its social media channels for more information and updates on the campaign.
