After Deadly Blast in China, GM Doesn’t Plan to Change Supply-Chain Safety Process

General Motors Co said it has no immediate plans to review how it manages safety standards further down its supply chain, three days after a deadly blast at a supplier’s contractor in China, reports the Wall Street Journal. The auto maker will continue the prevailing industry practice in which car makers rely on their direct component suppliers to monitor the safety standards of indirect suppliers further down the chain, the company’s president said.
