BREAKING NEWS! U.S. House Subcommittee Passes REPAIR Act
• Prevent vehicle manufacturers from employing any technological, legal, or cryptographic barriers that impede the ability of an aftermarket parts manufacturer or a vehicle repair facility to produce or install aftermarket parts and software that are custom or modify a vehicle.• Amend the bill’s Cybersecurity provision to ensure that motor vehicle owners and their designees have access to cryptographic or technologically protected vehicle-generated data and safety-critical vehicle systems.• Amend how the bill defines the term “critical repair information and tools” to include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) recalibrations necessary to return a vehicle to operational specifications.
As automotive technology continues to evolve, automotive enthusiasts and aftermarket businesses need access to the tools and information needed to modify and repair vehicles. SEMA is committed to protecting your right to these basic freedoms, but we need your help NOW!
