TOKYO – US Automotive component maker Joyson Safety Systems (JSS) said on Wednesday it was investigating inaccuracies in reporting seat belt straps test data at a Japanese factory acquired from the airbag maker bankrupt Takata Corp more than two years ago

« JSS is currently reviewing the available and relevant data over a 20-year period, test by test and product by product, » said Bryan Johnson, director of global communications for the Michigan-based company, in a statement.

The inaccuracies were found in reports from the Hikone, Japan plant, which JSS purchased from bankrupt airbag maker Takata Corp in April 2018 JSS said the inaccuracies occurred before it acquired the plant

Takata’s faulty airbag inflators have caused the auto industry’s biggest safety recall and have been linked to numerous fatalities and injuries, mostly in the United States

The Japanese Ministry of Transport has asked the JSS unit in the country to submit an investigation report and has also asked automakers to prepare for the recall of the seat belts in question, the Nikkei daily reported. , citing sources

A Transport Ministry official told Reuters on Wednesday the ministry is still investigating how many cars affected by the problem and whether such vehicles have been shipped to markets outside of Japan

JSS Japan is the country’s largest manufacturer of seat belts with a market share of around 40% – as well as just under 30% globally, according to Nikkei

Most of Takata’s airbag inflators contained a chemical compound that could explode with excessive force, sending shards of metal into vehicle compartments In 2017, Takata pleaded guilty to felony on its inflators, including including submitting false inflator test results to automotive manufacturer customers to induce them to purchase its defective products
