ACCC proposes to re-authorise RACQ reciprocal warranty scheme

The ACCC has issued a draft determination that proposes to grant re-authorisation to The Royal Automobile Club of Queensland Limited (RACQ), and RACQ Approved Repairers for the conduct outlined below. The ACCC proposes to grant authorisation for ten years.

The RACQ sought reauthorisation to set the labour rate to be charged by RACQ Approved Repairers for reciprocal warranty repairs and for RACQ Approved Repairers to only offer reciprocal warranty repair services to RACQ Members.

The ACCC originally authorised this conduct in 2013. The conduct has not changed since the original authorisation.

Further information about the authorisation, including information about making a submission in response to the draft determination, is available on the authorisation public register.
