APG this week finalised the results of an industry wide survey into the issues currently flagged by the NSW Government and the resulting inquiry.
The NSW Government last week announced a Parliamentary Inquiry into the motor vehicle repairer and insurer relationship, contracts and smash repair work in NSW, and with APG recognising the issues and opportunities that face all stakeholders, they are pleased to see dialogue and proactive initiatives being undertaken by industry regulators and leaders.
Steve Campbell, APG, said, “We will be particularly interested as to the outcomes and recommendations of this inquiry. It is a big discussion and all sides need to be well represented throughout the process. We certainly need to see some significant recommendations as a result of this move.”
“As a company working closely with repairers and insurers, I understand the issues and very serious concerns of many in the industry. I want to see robust conversations taking place and to see the industry grow significantly due to proactive initiatives such as this. Ideally other States and Territories will follow and if we all support them we can contribute to the sustainability and profitability of each business.”
“Our industry survey revealed some very poignant, interesting responses and reflections on just what each stakeholder perceives to be the real issues facing the industry today. We will be hoping to release our data in the very near future and would welcome any interest in that data from regulators, leaders and relevant stakeholders at anytime,” said Mr Campbell.
