The ADCO Compliance Solution

About ADCO

Each new regulatory evolution that impacts the auto industry imparts an obligation on the part of the dealer principal to comply. It also establishes a corresponding responsibility on each dealership’s compliance officer to implement the policies and conduct the oversight to satisfy the requisites mandated by that regulation.

The Association of Dealership Compliance Officers is committed to supporting the dealer’s investment in compliance and operates under the legal guidance of Hudson Cook, LLP law firm.

Regulatory Expertise

ADCO will identify areas in which regulatory compliance is mandatory at the state and federal level. We present and recommend training and resources to help dealers comply with the regulations across the dealership.

Compliance is Key

Dealerships are operating in an increasingly complex regulatory environment, with significant activity at the state level. A missed step or a neglected requisite can be costly.

Social Forum

As a best practice social forum, our members share their own expertise and experiences so we can all learn from each other.

ADCO Certification

Five education modules cover how to develop, execute, and monitor the general operations of a dealer’s Compliance Management System.

Training Sessions

ADCO provides training sessions to help your dealership address compliance mandates and customer expectations.


ADCO also provides step-by-step guidance in dealership compliance and regulatory requirements so you can have the confidence of knowing you're protected.
