August 10, 2015

Paul M. Laurenza, a member of Dykema’s Government Policy Practice Group and Office Managing Member of the firm’s Washington, D.C., office, authored the Law360 article, “NHTSA Civil Penalty Shows Need For Reporting Vigilance.”

While most vehicle and equipment manufacturers are aware of the "five-day letter" requirement to notify the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of defects in vehicles or equipment, Laurenza's article discusses a recent NHTSA civil penalty settlement that highlights the significance of a reporting requirement which manufacturers may not be very aware of or which is not adequately incorporated within the manufacturer’s internal reporting due diligence processes.
