MTA members, hosts and apprentices need to be aware of the regulations surrounding the misdeployment of a Takata Airbag and what to do in the event that this happens in a workplace.
As a result of the ongoing Takata Airbags recall, the ACCC has developed a Takata Misdeployment Incident Report Form (TMIR) which is necessary for suppliers to use when notifying the ACCC of any misdeployment incidents.
MTA members and hosts must forward a completed TMIR to the following email address in the event of a misdeployment incident occuring: email@example.com
You can access the TMIR by clicking here.

The Consumer Goods (Motor Vehicles with Affected Takata Airbag Inflators and Specified Spare Parts) Recall Notice 2018, requires suppliers to notify the ACCC of any misdeployment incidents involving an affected Takata Airbag Inflator in a vehicle.
It is critical that suppliers submit an initial TMIR to the ACCC within two business days from the time you first learn of a reported misdeployment.
The first TMIR regarding a given incident will be designated as the Initial Report. A subsequent report regarding the same incident can be designated as an amended, supplemental or final report.
