The auto components industry complements the automotive industry in helping to provide mobility for people and goods, which is essential in today’s inter-connected world. The heavy reliance on road-freight transportation and light vehicles for trade and travel naturally creates a demand for both original equipment (OE) parts and aftermarket parts. As such, the industry has become extremely important to the economy and as a significant driving force for scientific and technological transformation.

The industry’s societal benefits fit perfectly with China’s development goals, with the Chinese Government labelling the automotive sector (including auto components) a pillar industry. The auto components industry urges the government to consistently launch and commit to its economic development plans. These plans devote particular attention to the latest automotive technologies employed in new energy vehicles (NEVs) and help the industry thrive.

The Auto Components Working Group, created in 2000, consists of over 80 European and other foreign companies involved in the manufacturing of auto components and machine tools for the production of auto components and automotive assembly lines. Member companies also import and distribute auto components and provide after-sales services. An independent automotive aftermarket (IAM) Desk was established in October 2014 by the Auto Components Working Group, with its members exploring the possibilty of applying for a European Union (EU) Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulation (MVBER) to improve IAM business accessibility for suppliers and for the improvement of existing laws and regulations,1 some of which include the Access to the Vehicle Repairand Maintenance Information Methods, the Auto Sales and Management Methods (Sales Methods) and the Antimonopoly Guideline in the Automotive Industry (AML Guideline).
