Online campaign

Right To Repair group launches website

Published:  06 July, 2007

ORGANISERS of the Right To Repair Campaign are set to launch a website to act as a rallying point for their work.

The website will contain information, updates, and news about the on-going campaign to lobby European lawmakers over anything it sees as damaging consumers' freedom of choice over where they have their cars repaired.

Elsewhere, the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) has appointed top European law firm Osborne Clarke to help in its negotiations over the next Block Exemption Regulations (BER) - due to be renewed in 2010. Lawyer Miles Trower said the law firm would be doing its best to support the NFDA.

"The NFDA has a clear understanding of the issues affecting authorised networks and has demonstrated a strong commitment to achieving the best result for its members long-term," he commented.

NFDA director Sue Robinson said: "The next BER is likely to have a huge impact, so it is vital that we cover all the bases and make sure we make the best possible outcome for the industry. A spokesman for the RMIF declined to elaborate on what this "best possible" outcome might be.
