Nissan restarts domestic production after scandal 0


Nissan has re-started domestic production following a suspension. The halt in production was necessary so an investigation could be conducted into a scandal where uncertified technicians were signing off cars.  

The investigation found that staff had not received sufficient training to obtain the qualifications necessary to sign off cars. During tests, examinees would be given access to the answers and the length of their training was not adequate to learn the necessary skills.

The resumption of production was given the green light after Nissan proposed an overhaul to the inspection process that would address the un-qualified staff issues. The clearance to restart was given by the Japanese transport minister.

Over 1.2 million cars were recalled for re-inspection due to the scandal, including all passengers vehicles it produced for sale in Japan over the last three years.
