Event Details
 

Join OESA and Warner Norcross + Judd for legal insight and best practices at Managing Compliance Risks in the Automotive Industry, on Oct. 24, 2018, at the MSU Management Education Center, Troy, Mich. As the industry faces new and quickly evolving standards, regulations and issues impacting trade, Warner Norcross + Judd attorneys will walk attendees through several areas of compliance and discuss legal best practices for suppliers.
 
The new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) applies to U.S. businesses with operations in the EU, that market goods or services in the EU or that monitor behavior of individuals within the EU. Violators could face stiff penalties of up to the greater of €20 million or four percent of the company’s global annual revenues. Norbert Kugele, partner, Warner Norcross + Judd, will discuss best practices for vendors who handle personal information and the GDPR’s contracting and vendor management requirements.

The new and potential tariffs on steel, aluminum and Chinese goods are impacting suppliers in significant ways. Homayune Ghaussi, partner, Warner Norcross + Judd, will discuss how suppliers impacted by these tariffs can use their contractual terms to determine responsibility for tariff payments as well as provide an overview of available exemptions.  

Kurt Brauer, partner, and John Byl, partner, Warner Norcross + Judd, will discuss the implications of the Environmental Protection Agency and state regulatory agencies strengthening regulation of “emerging contaminants”, including PFAS and other compounds used in manufacturing. This has the potential to present widespread business risks for the automotive industry, with significant impacts on waste management practices, due diligence when expanding and the very real threat of enforcement actions and third-party lawsuits.

CAFE/GHG standards impact the product planning cycle for automakers and for suppliers. Steve Kohl, partner, Warner Norcross + Judd, will discuss the uncertainties created by the proposed NHTSA and EPA modifications, anticipated litigation, possible outcomes and what may be a reasonable timeline for resolution.
