Nissan drops more than 2% in stock market after suspending production in Japan

Nissan Motor fell more than 2 percent today on the Tokyo Stock Exchange shortly after the opening after announcing the day before the temporary suspension of production at its plants in Japan for the problem of irregular safety inspections.

Tokyo Motor Co., Oct. 20 (NNN) - Nissan Motor fell more than 2 percent today on the Tokyo Stock Exchange shortly after opening after announcing the day before the temporary suspension of production in its plants in Japan because of the problem of irregular safety inspections.

The automaker's stock fell 2.14 percent after the first hour and a half (CNN) - Nissan Motor reported the day before it would stop distributing cars in the local market for about two weeks with a view to reconfiguring the inspection mechanisms at its six national plants affected by irregularities.

The company has taken this decision after verifying that the anomalies persisted in three of its factories even after the problem came to light in late September, the company's chief executive Hiroto told a news conference. Saikawa.

The measure is aimed at correcting non-compliance with Japanese regulations and will not affect the distribution of cars outside the Asian country, said the official. responsible for the company in a media appearance held at its headquarters in Yokohama (south of Tokyo).

Saikawa explained that the continuity of the problem was due to a " communication 'between those responsible for plant management, which prevented the decision taken by its directive to correct irregularities to be applied as quickly as necessary in the production chains.

Nissan admitted the irregularities at the beginning of the month after they were detected by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Tourism and Transportation of Japan during inspections at its factories, prompting the manufacturer to call for a revision of 1.16 million vehicles in Japan.

At the urging of local authorities, Nissan should review the cars produced between January 2014 and September 2017 of 38 models, including 10 produced for other brands such as Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Mazda.

Nissan, whose alliance with Renault making it the world's largest car salesman in the first half of the year, reported that it plans to call for a review of some 4,000 additional cars due to the persistence of irregularities.

The Japanese authorities found that some of the checks that the vehicles pass before they went on sale were carried out by personnel inadequate, although the reports were signed by certified workers, a practice that the Ministry dismissed as "regrettable".

Japanese law states that only inspectors certified and previously registered in the system approved by the Ministry of Transport can give the approval to the vehicles that are going to be sold in the Japanese market.
