Joyson Safety Systems, an automotive parts manufacturer, reported that it has discovered more than a thousand instances of data tampering regarding seatbelt safety trials at two of its manufacturing facilities. These were formerly run by airbag manufacturer Takata Corporation.


An inquiry revealed that the data alteration pertained specifically to the quality of belt webbing used in seatbelts and child safety seats. These were modified to meet statutory and customer requirements. The affected facilities are based in the Philippines and Hikone, Japan.

The company does not plan to issue a recall as a re-inspection of the affected components found that safety was not compromised in any way. Going forward, it plans to incorporate digital safeguards that make information tampering less likely, and will focus on enhancing quality assurance methods.

Malfunctioning airbag inflators manufactured by Takata led to the largest recall in the automotive sector beginning in 2013. The defective components have been attributed to several fatalities around the world.
