RVIA Announces Regulatory & Safety Compliance Seminar Panelists

This year’s Regulatory & Safety Compliance (RSC) Seminar will include a panel consisting of industry compliance veterans, allowing attendees to discuss and ask questions, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association (RVIA).

The panelists are Vehicle Safety & Regulatory Compliance Vice President David Mihalick of THOR Industries, Lindsey Research Services Owner Von Lindsey, Forest River Head of Compliance Mike Becker, Enterprise Product Safety and Compliance Director Kevin Van Bronkhorst of Winnebago Industries, and Nelson Mullins Partner Christie Iannetta.

The panelist discussions will cover various topics, including parts traceability, recall completion rate efforts, researching possible safety issues, external communications, and consent orders.

Additionally, RVIA has expanded the 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 but with a broader look at regulatory concerns.

The seminar has been extended to a full day to allow for all the new programming, including a brand-new session focused on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations and their impact on the RV industry.

Following the panel Q&A, the day will end with a presentation by Dale Kardos of Kardos & Associates LLC. Mr. Kardos has been assisting motor vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, and trade associations in addressing North American regulations and legislation concerning motor vehicle safety, fuel economy, and emissions for 27 years.

The event will commence at 8 am on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 in the Crystal Ballroom at the Lerner Theatre in downtown Elkhart, Ind., and is scheduled to end at 5 pm. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.

With THOR Industries, Winnebago Industries, Forest River Inc., Lippert, Dave Carter & Associates, and Dometic, the Regulatory & Safety Compliance Seminar is free for RV Industry Association members.

All interested parties are invited, particularly those with compliance responsibilities related to safety or environmental regulations and those that wish to learn more about safety and recall processes. The EPA and CARB-related presentations will not begin until 2 PM.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or have general questions about the RSC seminar, please contact Kyle Correa-Brady at [email protected].

Registration is now open through July 20 for this informative members-only event.
