The Takata Airbag Recall Notice issued on 27 February 2018 is the first and largest compulsory recall ever undertaken impacting multiple industries of the Australian automotive sector, particularly to those involved in the buying, selling and repair of affected vehicles. 

In reaction to member inquiries and some continuing uncertainty on how to handle this issue, MTA WA and the MTAA has organised a briefing and arranged for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and Corrs Chambers Westgarth (advisers to the Takata Task Force) to provide a comprehensive automotive retail briefing to new and second-hand vehicle dealers, dismantlers, automotive repairers and all industry participants that are affected by this recall on Monday the 28th May 2018 [Free event].

Presenting to members will be:

Mr Glenn Probyn, Deputy General Manager, Takata Task Force, ACCC
Mr John Fogarty, Senior Associate, Corrs Chambers Westgarth

This briefing is open to the automotive sector. However, MTA WA members will be given preference. We are expecting this briefing to be popular and therefore places will be limited. You must register for this briefing of your attendance by close of business Wednesday 23rd May 2018.

Date:   Monday 28th May 2018

Time:   11:00am – 1:00pm

Location: Nedlands Yacht Club, The Esplanade, Nedlands

Cost: No fee, however all attendees must register
