The Association of Dealership Compliance Officers

ADCO was formed to help dealers mitigate risk – while maximizing profit and cultivating trust with consumers. We achieve our mission by training dealership compliance professionals to build and maintain an effective CMS and by providing them with ongoing resources to enhance their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

In addition to the many laws governing consumer and finance transactions, dealerships must comply with regulations that impact everything from human resources to health and safety. A dealership-wide CMS under a professional compliance officer provides a seamless, cost-efficient way to comply with all these rules.
