RVIA hosted its sixth annual Regulatory & Safety Compliance seminar lastweek. The event focused on compliance and recall topics, including NHTSA and Transport Canada labeling requirements, the basics of Early Warning Reporting (EWR) requirements and how to improve recall completion rates.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration members Josh Neff and Alex Ansley provided a keynote address. A panel followed, consisting of industry compliance veterans, enabling attendees the opportunity to discuss and ask questions.
RVIA provided a seminar recap, saying the event was very well regarded by its audience and presenters. “I wholeheartedly support the continuing education of our industry in all matters, especially the areas of compliance,” said Leo Akins, Forest River general manager of regulatory compliance. “I can think of no better way than to give those in our industry events like this seminar to engage and learn with industry professionals and regulators.”
RVIA said the sentiment was echoed by David Mihalick, Thor Industries senior director of vehicle safety & regulatory compliance.
“The information and insight from NHTSA and Transport Canada officials provided at this seminar is critical for anyone involved in standards and compliance,” Mihalick said. “Everyone comes away with new information that will further enhance their compliance knowledge which helps their company and the industry overall.”
