Opposition to Hawaii Fair Digital Electronic Equipment Repair Act

SIA opposition to Hawaii SB 425

On Jan. 31, 2019, the Security Industry Association (SIA) submitted its opposition to Hawaii SB 425, the Fair Digital Electronic Equipment Repair Act.

SIA’s primary concerns include mandating original equipment manufacturers to disclose proprietary source code, diagnostic and repair information to independent repair providers, placing the security and cybersecurity condition of certain equipment into a precarious state and jeopardizing warranty policies that have long proven to benefit and protect consumers.
