Manufacturers in the heavy vehicle industry sometimes issue voluntary recalls for vehicles and/or components that have been found to have safety-related defects.

Under the Chain of Responsibility (CoR), relevant parties in the transport supply chain have an obligation to eliminate or minimise potential harm or loss (risk) by doing all that is reasonably practicable in their business to ensure safety. Having a system in place that allows you to identify vehicles subject to a recall, and taking the required action, are ways to support transport safety.

To help industry identify vehicles/components subject to recalls, the NHVR has listed some of the current high-risk and high-volume recalls relating to heavy vehicles:

Takata airbag recall – Hino 300 series vehicles: Operators of Hino 300 series vehicles may have received correspondence from the NHVR advising of the Takata airbag recall. If you have received a letter or email, please contact Hino Australia on 1300 014 466.

A full list of recalls can be found on the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications website

If your vehicle is affected by a recall, please follow the steps as advised by the department.
