MEMA Still Accepting Submissions on Regulations

The Bush administration's Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has announced a comprehensive review of regulations affecting manufacturers in the U.S. OMB has requested information on any U.S. regulations that are inefficient or problematic for manufacturers. Specifically, the eligible regulations would be those that are costly, dated, or represent a significant obstacle to your business. MEMA is working with Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Mich.) to create a list of items for submission to the administration. This represents an opportunity for small, medium and large automotive suppliers to actively address obstacles to their businesses and restrictions to their potential growth.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC — The Bush administration’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has announced a comprehensive review of regulations affecting manufacturers in the U.S. OMB has requested information on any U.S. regulations that are inefficient or problematic for manufacturers. Specifically, the eligible regulations would be those that are costly, dated, or represent a significant obstacle to your business.

MEMA is working with Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Mich.) to create a list of items for submission to the administration. This represents an opportunity for small, medium and large automotive suppliers to actively address obstacles to their businesses and restrictions to their potential growth. MEMA is also interested in those regulations that may be difficult in terms of compliance, require excessive amounts of paperwork or which are not clear. The final list of regulations from the auto supplier industry will be sent to OMB for review and those regulations may then be amended and fixed.

No companies will be identified in the final submission. It will be entered under MEMA’s name.

All the relevant forms are available from MEMA-DC. Contact Ana Lopes at [email protected] [email protected] or 202-312-9241 for more information.
