The reality is that government employees and government agencies are charted to spend 100% of their time on regulatory investigations and enforcement matters, while small business owners must wear many hats on a day to day basis. It is difficult, therefore, for the small business owner to keep up with regulatory trends, enforcement actions, and even news events or industry speculation about current actions by the state agency charged with regulating California’s automotive repair industry. The blog published by Automotive Defense Specialists aims to address this information imbalance. This latest, important update on DAD / OIS systems and possible ISOs is an important indication of this commitment.
