airbag recall brings a scandal to light, Takata stopped audits due to cost

Takata stopped its internal safety checks on its airbags because the audits were too costly, years before airbags made by the Japanese auto-parts giant were linked to eight deaths and over a hundred injuries, according to a new Congressional report.

 Emails between top Takata executives in 2011 revealed that "global safety audits stopped for financial reasons for last 2 years," the Congressional report showed.

Takata began operations in 1933, as a maker of woven textile fabrics.

In the 1950s, they began to develop seat belts for automobiles, and after that, they developed airbags, child restraint systems and additional safety products.

To prevent the rise in the number of accidents accompanying the progress of motorization, Takata has worked to achieve its dream of “a society with zero fatalities from traffic accidents” by improving automotive safety systems.

Irony.

What no one has asked is how ISO failed to notice the audits going incomplete. Takata is an ISO 14001, and 50001 and 9001 certified company http://takataprotectionsystems.com/why-takata/

ISO is the International Standards Organization and I'm shocked this matter of stopping the internal safety checks slipped their notice
