Vehicle Owners

Automotive Market Surveillance Authority (AMSA)

The roles and responsibilities of AMSA. 

Our role is to carry out market surveillance to ensure that new vehicles and their components meet with type-approval requirements under EU Regulation 2018/858 and was given further effect in Irish law through S.I. No. 556/2020. This applies to health, safety, the environment and any other aspect of public interest protection. For more information, see our type-approval webpage.

Since 1 July 2023, the AMSA scope has been expanded to cater for product recalls summary information for category L vehicles alongside vehicle categories M, N and O. Previously the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) provided this information. This  covers the market surveillance of L-Category vehicles under EU Regulation 168/2013 and was given further effect in Irish law through  S.I. No. 340 of 2023.


Vehicle types

As AMSA, we provide recall summary information for vehicle categories L, M, N and O, which includes motorcycles, mopeds, trikes, quads, passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, buses and trailers.


Vehicle safety recalls

If a vehicle safety defect is found anywhere in Europe, we are alerted through the Safety Gate Rapid Alert System , the EU vehicle recall portal, and in turn notify the Irish public by publishing the defect on our vehicle recall section below.  

A vehicle recall occurs when a manufacturer identifies a fault relating to a particular component(s) that poses a serious risk to road safety, public health or the environment and recalls the vehicle to repair the issue. The Automotive Market Surveillance Authority (AMSA) advise that vehicle safety recall campaigns should always be carried out as soon as possible.

The vehicle manufacturer must contact the owner directly to notify them of the following: 

  • why the vehicle is being recalled 
  • what you should do next
  • who you should contact. 

The information below outlines vehicle recalls from January 2024 for vehicle categories L, M, N and O

A safety issue has been identified whereby fires under the bonnet have occurred in a number of vehicles, caused by a specific type of engine damage. If a piston rod falls out, it may rupture the engine block and cause an oil leakage. Due to insufficient air flow through the engine compartment, this oil can stay trapped in the lower engine guard.

A safety issue has been identified whereby the subject vehicles are equipped with a front-view and/or a rearview camera used to capture and display an image of the area in front of and/or behind the vehicle. Due to insufficient laser welding of the camera case at the supplier during a specific production period, there is a possibility that the camera case may separate when exposed to external stress over time, allowing water to leak into the camera.

Lexus Ireland recalls certain Lexus RX300 vehicles

30 January 2024 

 

Lexus Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Lexus RX300 model vehicles. 

A safety issue has been identified whereby subject vehicles are equipped with a high-pressure fuel pump. The fuel pump has a plunger that moves down in a cylinder to create a vacuum which brings in fuel through a fuel inlet control valve and up in the cylinder to create pressure which sends fuel to the engine through the check valve. Due to insufficient press fitting of certain parts in the high-pressure fuel pump, operation over time may cause (1) the cylinder to move and create wear between the cylinder and pump body resulting in increased stress to both aforementioned valves; and/or (2) the valve seat to move within the pump body resulting in valve seat wear and increased stress to the inlet control valve. This increased stress can cause a crack to develop at the weld for the affected valve(s), which could lead to a fuel leak and potential fuel odor. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak can result in an increased risk of a fire.  

There is 1 affected vehicle in the Republic of Ireland that was produced between 12 March 2018 and 26 May 2022.

Toyota Ireland recalls certain Prius model vehicles

17 April 2024

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain Prius vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby the subject vehicles are equipped with an electric rear door lock system which includes a door opener switch and a rear door lock release actuator to release the latch from outside of the vehicle. Due to insufficient waterproofing of the door opener switch, if a large amount of water splashes on the switch (for example, at a car wash), there is a possibility that the water could enter the switch and cause a short circuit. If the door is not locked, the short circuit could cause the door to open unexpectedly. If this occurs, there will be a notification on the combination meter, and a buzzer will sound if the vehicle is in motion. A door opening while the vehicle is moving or during a crash could increase the risk of injury to occupants.

There are 250 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 15 March 2023 and 29 March 2024.

Toyota Ireland recalls certain CHR, Corolla, Auris passenger vehicles

30 January 2024

Toyota Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of certain CHR, Corolla, Auris vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby the subject vehicles are equipped with a high-pressure fuel pump. The fuel pump has a plunger that moves down in a cylinder to create a vacuum which brings in fuel through a fuel inlet control valve and up in the cylinder to create pressure which sends fuel to the engine through the check valve. Due to insufficient press fitting of certain parts in the high-pressure fuel pump, operation over time may cause (1) the cylinder to move and create wear between the cylinder and pump body resulting in increased stress to both aforementioned valves; and/or (2) the valve seat to move within the pump body resulting in valve seat wear and increased stress to the inlet control valve. This increased stress can cause a crack to develop at the weld for the affected valve(s), which could lead to a fuel leak and potential fuel odor. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak can result in an increased risk of a fire.

There are 571 affected vehicles in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between:

Auris: 6 November 2017 and 30 November 2018

CHR: 27 November 2017 and 4 February 2022

Frequently asked questions

This content is for general information only. It does not, and is not intended to, provide legal or technical advice or to represent a legal interpretation of the matters it addresses.

When a vehicle part(s) is found to be dangerous or defective during use, the manufacturer must recall the vehicle to fix the issue.
AMSA is notified of vehicles which are subject to recall through an EU portal called EU Safety Gate Rapid Alert System.
Once the manufacturer has been made aware of the recall issue, they must immediately inform the approval authority and agree a course of action with them to repair the fault(s). The NSAI will be involved with a recall if they were the approval authority that issued the approval in the first instance.
The manufacturer must immediately inform the approval authority who granted approval to the vehicle concerned and propose appropriate remedies. The approval authority must then communicate the proposed measures to all other member states without delay. Note that the approval authority may withdraw an EC vehicle type-approval if the manufacturer does not propose and implement effective remedies.

In addition to the tests for approval, there are many more tests carried out on a vehicle during its design and production.

These are carried out by the vehicle manufacturer. Extensive testing ensures that a vehicle will meet legal requirements and also perform adequately during its useful life.

While a vehicle component may have passed tests to ensure that it performs adequately during its life, it may still fail during use. This is because vehicle testing has difficulty in replicating exactly how a component will behave after many hours of driving or under unexpected or unlikely circumstances.

The recall system ensures that problems encountered during driving are acted on by the manufacturer.

Vehicle recalls dating from 2011 to 2022 are located in this archive.

If you are concerned that your vehicle was subject to a recall and you missed it, you should contact the manufacturer or authorised distributor.

In the case of a second-hand vehicle which was subject to a recall, the previous owner may have had the vehicle checked. Documentation showing this should be with the owner’s manual or vehicle documentation in the storage compartment. You can also check with the authorised distributor quoting the vehicle identification number (VIN).

The manufacturer will endeavour to contact all owners of affected vehicles. They will engage with the Driver and Vehicle Computer Services Division (DVCSD) in order to attain the contact details of registered owners. Therefore, it is important that the details recorded on the National Vehicle and Driver File (NVDF), particularly your ownership details are always up to date. If you wish to amend these, you can email them at [email protected] 
Once you have been contacted it is your responsibility to bring the affected vehicle to the nearest dealership for repairs and or adjustments. If this is a safety critical recall it should be done immediately.
No. The NCT is not responsible for policing vehicle recall issues. If you have safety concerns over a vehicle recall issue, we recommend you contact the original manufacturer or authorised distributor. The NCT is a check test that the vehicle meets the minimum roadworthiness requirements without any dismantling of the vehicle and that parts required to be tested, where visible and accessible, meet a basic standard on the day of the test. The NCT is not and cannot be deemed a warranty.
A vehicle may have been launched on the Irish market after the recall issue was rectified or the recall campaign did not concern any vehicle registered in Ireland. If you feel your vehicle may be subject to a recall campaign, please contact the manufacturer. If you have any queries in relation to recalls, contact us in the RSA at [email protected]
