Is your car still under warranty? If it is, you can still have your car serviced by The MercMedics Ltd without invalidating the warranty*. Block Exemption Regulations that came into effect in October 2003 changed the way cars may be serviced and repaired, enabling motorists to choose who services their cars.
"Independent repairers can carry out normal maintenance and repair services during a vehicle's warranty period without invalidating the Vehicle Assemblers conditions provided that; the service is in accordance with the VA's servicing schedules is recorded as such and that the parts used are of appropriate quality and are recorded as such." The Ruling was updated in 2010 ensuring that manufacturers do not abuse warranties by requesting cars are serviced only in authorised garages.
Brussels, 27 May 2010
The European Commission has adopted new competition rules for agreements between vehicle manufacturers and their authorised dealers, repairers and spare parts distributors. The new rules will increase competition in the market for repair and maintenance by improving access to technical information needed for the repairs and by making it easier to use alternative spare parts. They will allow the Commission to tackle manufacturers' abuse of warranties when they request that cars are serviced only in authorised garages.
"I strongly believe the new framework will bring tangible benefits for consumers by bringing down the cost of repairs and maintenance that represent an excessive share of the total cost of a car over its lifetime. It will also reduce the cost of distribution by doing away with overly restrictive rules," said Vice-President of the Commission and Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia.
The new rules introduce a 30% market share threshold above which agreements between car manufacturers and authorised repairers will no longer be block exempted, aligning the rules with the general framework (Vertical restraints block exemption Regulation 330/2010 adopted on 20 April, see IP/10/445 and MEMO/10/138). This will make it easier for the Commission to tackle possible abuses to the detriment of consumers, such as the refusal to grant independent repairers access to technical information. It will increase competition between authorised and independent repairers.
The new rules will strengthen repairers' access to alternative spare parts which can represent a big share of the repair bills.
Car manufacturers will no longer be able to make the warranty conditional on having the oil changed or other car services only in authorised garages. Of course, manufacturers may request repairs covered by the warranty - and paid for by the manufacturer - be carried out within the authorised network.
All this is important for consumers because repair bills account for an estimated 40% of the total cost of owning a car and costs have been rising in recent years.
The new rules will came into force on 1 June 2010 as concerns the repair and maintenance markets.
The Commission will monitor developments and take appropriate remedial action if it detects problematic behaviour or changed competitive conditions, as it has done in the past.
Block Exemption Regulations exempt categories of agreements that comply with their provisions from the EU ban on restrictive business practices (Article 101(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union). The old rules for the car sector (Regulation 1400/2002) were adopted in 2002 and expire on 31 May. Before adopting the new rules the Commission conducted an extensive and lengthy consultation process.
In the past few years, the Commission has brought four cases against DaimlerChrysler, Fiat, Toyota and GM to ensure that they allow independent garages adequate access to repair information (see IP/07/1332). The new Block Exemption Regulation can be found at:
