The Tasmanian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (TACC) has served the automotive industry in Tasmania since 1928.

There had always been a long standing and mutually supportive relationship between TACC and the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce (VACC).

TACC successfully lobbied state government on behalf of members for many years, but times were changing and in 1999 TACC and VACC were amalgamated. This merger offered members a more diverse range of services, while still maintaining a Tasmanian perspective on local issues.

Today we are dedicated to the promotion, representation and preservation of member businesses to local, state and federal governments, as well as the media, consumers and the community.

TACC news

As members will recall from our previous Bulletin, the contentious Closing Loopholes Bill was split in December 2023 following a deal being reached with the Albanese Government and crossbench Senators David Pocock and Jacqui Lambie. Like its predecessor, the No. 2 Bill was also rushed through the Australian Parliament, without proper scrutiny, on 12 February 2024.

Members were advised on the 4th of February 2024 that the Australian Government released a consultation paper on a fuel efficiency standard called the New Vehicle Efficiency Standard (NVES).
