Automotive dealership compliance auditing services

Today’s automotive dealerships face many challenges when it comes to meeting the laws and regulations set forth by federal and state governments to regulate automotive dealerships. These laws and regulations are becoming more and more stringent, and government regulators are becoming more aggressive about targeting car dealership owners that are not in compliance with these laws.

Some of the automotive law and regulations that are at the top of list include:

  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Privacy Rule
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Safeguards Rule
  • Disposal Rule
  • Used Car Rule
  • Red Flags Rule
  • Regulation Z or “Truth in Lending Act”
  • Equal Credit Opportunity Act

Many dealership owners are feeling the stress and strain when it comes to making sure that they are not only implementing all the required procedures, but that they are doing this in such a way that they are legally compliant. Failure to comply with these mandatory regulations can result in costly mistakes for a dealership.

Enlisting the services of a business consulting firm that specializes in automotive dealership compliance auditing ensures that your dealership is meeting all the laws, rules, and regulations in order to avoid the stiff penalties imposed by both state and federal governments.
