IAG submission to the 2014 review of the Motor Vehicles Standards Act 1989
20 Oct 2014
Insurance Australia Group (IAG) welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development as part of the review of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (‘the Act’).
As Australia’s largest insurer IAG experiences firsthand the extensive changes taking place in the global and domestic automotive industry driven by technology and consumer desire for safer vehicles. This is particularly true when it comes to working with expert, small business smash repairers to fix customer vehicles following a collision.
We believe it is appropriate that the Act be reviewed to ensure that it continues to meet its objectives, particularly in relation to safety and providing competition and consumer choice.
