Illegal Tampering Toolkit

​At EDA we recognize that the Right to Repair legislation is an issue that could have a significant impact on dealers across the United States and Canada. Our position on this legislation states:

  • EDA Supports legislation that protects consumers.
  • EDA opposes legislation that allows the widespread release of proprietary equipment repair information to unqualified persons or entities which are not subject to uniform standards including training, safety, engineering, and environmental.
  • Such legislation could facilitate conduct that would put equipment operators and third parties at risk and put dealerships that invest in training, safety, and liability coverage at an unfair disadvantage.

Josh Evans, EDA’s VP of Government Relations, chairs an industry working group on right to repair legislation, which includes participants from regional dealer associations, OEMs, nongovernment agencies, and like-minded trade associations. For more information, contact Josh at or 636.349.6206.
