Regulatory Affairs

Government regulations at the local, state and federal levels affect all aspects of GM’s business and can dramatically impact the company’s bottom line.

GM’s Public Policy department is engaged in all of these issues, including fuel economy standards here in the United States and abroad; regulatory compliance issues relating to safety, emissions, and other product regulatory standards; and electric vehicle incentives, which directly benefit our customers and help pave the way towards the future of mobility.
