Access Repair Information

In support and compliance with the new Australian information sharing law all Dealer and Independent technicians and Registered Training Organization employees who need access to information for hybrid and EVs, Hydrogen powered vehicles and assisted initialisation and reprogramming (AIR) must provide proper documentation to meet the legal requirements for a Fit and Proper Person. AASRA members have access to direct links to all participating automaker service information websites (VSP available 2023).

Access to OE Scan Tools

In the current world chip shortage, scan tool availability is expected to be a challenge well into 2022. To facilitate access to services that require these tools AASRA is supporting the Assisted Initialisation and Reprogramming whereby a technician can request a remote or in person session with an AASRA vetted and approved provider to complete repairs. Please watch the automaker brand page within this site for updates to scan tool availability. The home page for automaker information is here

Vehicle Security Professional Registry

UPDATED: AASRA is accepting applications for Vehicle Security Professional Credentials as part of the Secure Data Release model. Registry credentials allow repair professionals and locksmiths access to vehicle key and immobiliser codes. Automakers will be delivering security data through AASRA using the Assisted Initialisation and Reprogramming function of SDRM, Go to that page by clicking Assisted Initialisation and Reprogramming this process will be very manual for several months as we work through enabling features originally planned for 2023.
