Nissan Restarts Japanese Production After Scandal

Three weeks have passed since Nissan suspended production in their home market.

Japan's transport minister told a press conference Tuesday that Nissan Motor had dealt inappropriately with the ministry's inspection in September which first found the automaker had been using unauthorized workers to conduct final auto tests.

Nissan Motor Co Ltd today resumed most of the domestic production of cars that was earlier suspended in the wake of a scandal over uncertified technicians signing off on final inspections for decades. Approximately 34,000 vehicles were affected, produced between September 20 to October 18, 2017.

Production and shipment have resumed at five plants - its Oppama plant and Nissan Shatai Co.'s Shonan plant in Kanagawa Prefecture, its plant in Tochigi Prefecture, and the Nissan Kyushu plant and Nissan Shatai Co.'s plant in Fukuoka Prefecture.

In their statement, Nissan said, '(From) Nov. 1 and Nov. 5, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism conducted on-site inspections at all plants except Nissan Shatai subsidiary Kyoto Auto Works. Further Nissan also said that it was retraining and retesting inspectors and it had also corrected inconsistencies between plant operating manuals and plant activities in documents provided to Japan's transport ministry.

To prevent recurrences of such lapses, Nissan will break up the inspection process so that the final test is carried out in a separate location from other inspection sites in the plant.

The Japanese regulations stipulate that only inspectors who are certified and previously registered in the system approved by the MLIT can grant the approval to the vehicles that are going to be sold in the Japanese market. "Nissan has taken preventive measures aimed to ensure final vehicle inspection conforms with Japanese regulations", the company said. While maintaining its top priority on safety, Nissan is committed to strengthening final vehicle inspection conformity and implementing the corrective measures.
