SALVAGE TAKATA AIRBAGS RECOVERY PROGRAM
A Program of the Auto Recyclers Association of Australia
The Australian Government has issued a Compulsory Recall Notice covering certain Takata Airbags (the ACCC Compulsory Recall Notice)
Under this Notice, it is illegal for an Automotive Recycler to sell an Affected Takata Airbag
VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS WISH TO RECOVER AFFECTED AIRBAGS THAT ARE NOW IN THE HANDS OF AUTO RECYCLERS, OR THAT COME INTO THEIR POSSESSION IN THE FUTURE.
THEY ALSO WISH TO IDENTIFY AFFECTED AIRBAGS THAT HAVE BEEN SCRAPPED.
They will compensate auto recyclers for time spent in removing an AFFECTED AIRBAG from a vehicle, and making it available for return to the manufacturer. The compensation offered is:
$75 PER DRIVER AIRBAG
$90 PER PASSENGER AIRBAG
There are two options for you to check whether you have any AFFECTED AIRBAGS in your stock (or have scrapped them in the past):
- FILE UPLOAD: UPLOAD A DATA FILE FROM YOUR INVENTORY SYSTEM BY REGISTERING
- MANUAL CHECK: DO A MAKE/MODEL CHECK HERE; IF YOU FIND AN AFFECTED VEHICLE, DO A VIN CHECK HERE
