ACCC re-authorises RACQ reciprocal warranty scheme

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

The RACQ sought reauthorisation to set the labour rate to be charged by RACQ Approved Repairers for reciprocal warranty repairs provided by them 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 authorization.

Further information about the ACCC’s determination is available on the authorisation Public register.
