The compulsory recall applies to:
- all vehicles that are subject to existing Takata voluntary recalls, and
- approximately 1.3 million additional vehicles that have not been voluntarily recalled.
The compulsory recall requires suppliers of vehicles with defective Takata airbags to replace all defective Takata airbags in Australian vehicles by 31 December 2020 (or later in some instances if approved by the ACCC). Some vehicles will be recalled immediately, and others on a rolling basis, scheduled based on various factors including relative safety risk. This means that not all vehicles will be recalled straight away.
