Regulatory Affairs


NADA’s Regulatory Affairs Group protects and promotes franchised car and truck dealership interests before the federal administrative agencies. Each year, Regulatory Affairs analyzes and engages on hundreds of federal regulatory issues and proposals, evaluating them for potential dealership impacts. Regulatory Affairs also helps to formulate NADA policy positions on those issues and, through written comments, testimony and, if necessary, legal action, advocates dealership interests before the federal agencies and judiciary.

The Regulatory Affairs Group coordinates its activities with NADA's Legislative Affairs group on subjects of common concern, works closely with state and metro dealer associations, and regularly engages with other industry trade associations. Regulatory Affairs also prepares compliance-oriented guides, bulletins and articles, conducts presentations to dealers and dealership compliance professionals and directly provides compliance advice to dealerships.
