Initiated by AFCAR in 2007, this Europe-wide campaign is a major communication tool that aims at maintaining a level-playing field in the automotive aftermarket, advocating for the access to technical information, spare parts, multi-brand diagnostic tools and test equipment, and training needed to ensure quality repair and maintenance services, at affordable prices.
