Chrysler to open office for safety, regulations

DETROIT — Chrysler Group LLC announced Tuesday the establishment of a new office called “vehicle safety and regulatory compliance” led by a veteran company senior vice president, Scott Kunselman.

The move comes as U.S. automakers are under increased scrutiny over safety issues, and after Chrysler’s rival, General Motors Co., established a similar office earlier this year.

“This action will help intensify the company’s continuing commitment to vehicle safety and regulatory compliance,” Chrysler said in a statement.

So far this year, Chrysler has recalled about 3.2 million vehicles in the United States, while GM has recalled about 25.8 million vehicles.

Prior to the establishment of the new safety office, Chrysler’s engineering group was responsible for vehicle safety and regulatory compliance.
