Several states are considering legislation to provide access to proprietary diagnostic systems to independent repair services.


AEM is working with relevant dealer groups to educate state legislators about our industry commitment to provide repair and diagnostic tools to farmers by 2021.


Farm equipment manufacturers and their dealers support their customers by working to maximize productivity and reduce downtime for machinery. That’s why farm equipment and dealers are making a commitment to make available a comprehensive toolkit of maintenance, diagnostic, and repair information for tractors and combines by 2021.

Overly-broad “Right to Repair” legislation is not only unnecessary, it would risk the safety, durability and environmental sustainability of equipment. To encourage innovation and regulatory compliance, manufacturers and dealers will not allow access to back-end source code which can be used to reset safety features, reprogram control units, or change settings that affect emissions and safety compliance.
