The New Automobile Franchise Act (NAFA), Section 13-14-101 et seq., governs the distribution and sales of new motor vehicles through franchise arrangements, and regulates the relationship between franchisors and franchisees. Sections 13-14-104 and 13-14-105 authorize the Utah Motor Vehicle Franchise Advisory Board and the Department to promulgate rules regarding the administration of NAFA.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No comments have been received regarding this rule in the last five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The rule is necessary to administer the registration of franchisees and franchisors and to conduct administrative proceedings before the New Motor Vehicle Franchise Advisory Board. Therefore, the rule should be continued.
