What the Automotive Aftermarket Throughout the Country Needs to Know About New Regulatory Requirements for Brake Pads

The states of California and Washington have enacted new laws that will require major changes to the composition of brakes, including a reduction in the use of copper. While these new laws impose extensive requirements on brake manufacturers, both original equipment and aftermarket,  firms that distribute, sell and install brake pads also will be saddled with significant compliance responsibilities. WAIA is working with other national and state aftermarket associations to develop an industry training program to assure that everyone is familiar with the compliance issues with these new laws and regulations.
