Welcome to the Australian Tyre Dealers and Retreaders Association of Australia.

The quantity and disposal of waste tyres within the Australian marketplace is a long term project for ATDRA. ATDRA is committed to the reduction of waste tyres through the promotion of retreading and appropriate tyre maintenance and continues activities analysing how the Australian Government’s Tyre Stewardship program can reduce disposal costs for members. ATDRA is also undertaking advocacy activities with key Government bodies to review the Franchising Code so that it better protects the interests of franchised tyre retailers and is also assisting Government to review Australian Consumer Law (ACL) to ensure businesses are offered improved legislative protections.

Each year the MTAA, through its member associations and ATDRA, receives numerous concerns and complaints of cases of unfair franchising arrangements, miss use of market power, anti-competitive conduct and issues concerning business and consumer rights.

MTAA is collecting evidence to advocate to Government for a review of the Franchising Code so that it can better reflect the requirements of automotive businesses (including those that retail tyres) or potentially be replaced with legislative instruments that do.

Please use the link below to send to MTAA information regarding unfair franchising arrangements:

  • Business name.
  • What within your franchising agreement unfairly poses restrictions on your business?
  • What actions are franchisors undertaking that unfairly impose restrictions on your ability to conduct work and your business profitability?

MTAA and ATDRA also urges individual tyre retailers to also provide evidence of unfair and anti-competitive restrictions on franchising arrangements to their individual state motor trades association or automotive chamber of commerce, in addition to reporting the issue using the link below.
