The RVIA 2022 Regulatory & Safety Compliance (RSC) Seminar will include a panel of industry compliance veterans. The panelists are:
- David Mihalick, vice president vehicle safety & regulatory compliance, Thor Industries
- Von Lindsey, owner, Lindsey Research Services
- Mike Becker, head of compliance, Forest River
- Kevin Van Bronkhorst, director of enterprise product safety and compliance, Winnebago Industries
- Christie Iannetta, partner, Nelson Mullins
The panelist discussions will cover various topics, including parts traceability, recall completion rate efforts, researching possible safety issues, external communications and consent orders. Attendees will have an opportunity for discussion and questions.
RVIA expanded programming this year. For the first time, the RSC Seminar will include a presentation from Jeremy Hamilton of Transport Canada. The seminar will still focus on several NHTSA-related issues with a broader look at regulatory concerns.
The seminar has been extended to a full day to allow for the new programming. A new session will cover Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations and their impact on the RV industry.
After the panel Q&A, the day will end with a presentation by Dale Kardos of Kardos & Associates LLC.
The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 26, in the Crystal Ballroom at the Lerner Theatre. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. The EPA and CARB presentations start at 2 p.m.
The event is for RVIA members only. There is no charge for the RSC Seminar, which is sponsored by Thor Industries, Winnebago Industries, Forest River Inc., Lippert, Dave Carter & Associates and Dometic.
Registration is open through July 20. Those interested in sponsorship can email Kyle Correa-Brady at [email protected]
