To: All AADA MEMBERS
The AADA has received the below communication from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has been working closely with the Australian Financial Security Authority as part of the Australian Government response to the Takata airbag recall. The Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) has been updated to provide consumers and industry with information about whether a car is affected by the compulsory Takata Airbag Recall. If the car is affected, the certificate will clearly state:
This vehicle is affected by the compulsory Takata airbag recall.
Please check the vehicle’s recall status on the manufacturer’s website or by contacting them directly or by entering your registration details at www.ismyairbagsafe.com.au.
Faulty airbags can kill or seriously injure you and your passengers.
For more information about the compulsory Takata recall see www.productsafety.gov.au/recalls.
The cost of a PPSR search is $2.00 GST inclusive. Please visit https://www.ppsr.gov.aufor further information.
We welcome this development and believe that this initiative will help improve the effectiveness of the Takata compulsory recall as it is another mechanism for businesses and consumers to identify whether a vehicle is affected by the recall. This will assist the industry in complying with their obligations under the compulsory recall.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Takata Task Force via email at email@example.com.
