The Productivity Commission has released an issues paper to assist individuals and organisations to prepare submissions to the Inquiry into Right to Repair.

Right to Repair is a consumer’s ability to repair faulty goods, or access repair services, at a competitive price. This can include repair by a manufacturer, a third-party, or self-repair.

The inquiry will consider a range of issues impacting the Australian repair market, including potential barriers and enablers of greater competition.

The issues paper outlines:

  • the scope of the inquiry
  • the Commission’s procedures
  • matters about which the Commission is seeking comment and information
  • how to make a submission.
