Salvage - Affected Takata airbags
BMW has engaged Auto Recyclers Association of Australia (ARAA) for its recovery program of affected BMW Takata airbags from auto recyclers, scrap metal dealers and second hand part sellers across Australia.
Under the compulsory recall, it is illegal to sell or supply affected airbags in trade or commerce. Best endeavours must be used to identify affected airbags. For affected airbags found in your possession, auto recyclers and salvage yards can receive compensation for the time removing affected airbags and providing the required documentation for their recovery. Details are available at http://www.takatarecovery.com.
Independent second-hand vehicle dealers, auction houses and suppliers of spare parts must ensure they meet the requirements of the Takata Airbag Recall.
The full details are contained in the Consumer Goods (Motor Vehicles with Affected Takata Airbag Inflators and Specified Spare parts) Recall Notice 2018.
The ACCC has provided guidance documents for the key requirements.
