RV Industry Association Announces Panelists For Regulatory & Safety Compliance Seminar

Jun 30, 2022

This year’s Regulatory & Safety Compliance Seminar will include a panel consisting of industry compliance veterans where attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions. 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 a wide range of topics, including parts traceability, recall completion rate efforts, researching possible safety issues, external communications, and consent orders

In addition to the panelists, the RV Industry Association has expanded the programming this year with both a presentation from Choon Lee of NHTSA, and for the first time ever, 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 8am on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 in the Crystal Ballroom at the Lerner Theatre in downtown Elkhart, Ind., and is scheduled to end at 5:00pm. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.

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

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