What is Block Exemption

So as not to risk invalidating a vehicle's warranty, motorists were required to have their vehicle servicing and repairs at the main dealer. The EU Block Exemption Regulation 1400/2002 (Est. October 2003) means motorists have flexibility in selecting where they can get their car serviced. Due to this legislation, maintenance and service work does not have to be completed by the main dealer so long as the garage uses Original Equipment (OE) 'Matching Quality' parts, and are recorded as such, following the manufacturer's service schedules.

The Block Exemption Regulation (BER) covers service and maintenance during the warranty period and prohibits vehicle manufacturers warranties from including conditions that require:

  • all normal maintenance be provided within the vehicle manufacturers network
  • all parts used must be the manufacturers original spare parts

So what does this mean to the motorist? BER safeguards free competition in aftermarket parts, repairs and services and will benefit motorists by reducing the cost of servicing through better labour rates and competitively priced parts.
