Automotive Market Surveillance Authority (AMSA)

The role and responsibilities of the Automotive Market Surveillance Authority (AMSA). 

We are the Automotive Market Surveillance Authority (AMSA) in Ireland, appointed by the Department of Transport in line with EU legislation

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. This applies to health, safety, the environment and any other aspect of public interest protection.  


Vehicle types

As AMSA we are responsible for vehicle categories M, N and O, which includes 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 RAPEX, 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 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 2021 for vehicle categories M, N and O

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain AMG GT, CLS, EQC, GLC, E-Class, G-Class and S-Class passenger vehicles

September 24, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, CLS, EQC, GLC, E-Class, G-Class and S-Class passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles the electrical connector of the side-impact sensors might not be latched in accordance with the specifications. In this case, it cannot be entirely excluded that the connector of a side-impact sensor could become detached over the lifetime of the vehicle. In the event of a side impact, this would lead to delayed activation of the restraint systems, thereby reducing the restraining effect. In this case, there would be a higher risk of injury to occupants.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain EQC passenger vehicles

July 6, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on certain Mercedes-Benz EQC passenger vehicles.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles corrosion protection on the high voltage battery housing around the connections cannot be guaranteed to last for the whole lifetime of the vehicle. After the vehicle has been in use for a longer period of time, the high voltage battery housing could therefore corrode under certain specific environmental conditions. The sealing effect of the battery housing could then gradually be compromised, allowing moisture to penetrate the battery. This could lead to isolation failure, resulting in it being impossible to restart the vehicle once the engine has been switched off. In addition, if these circumstances were to arise, the risk of fire cannot be completely excluded.

There are 4 vehicles affected in the Republic of Ireland that were produced between 22 February 2019 to 28 November 2019.

A safety issue has been identified whereby a bore hole in the universal joint on the steering shaft may not meet the specifications. In this case, there could be play between the bearing fitted into the bore hole and the universal joint. Over time, this play could increase, resulting in noises and an unresponsive steering feel. In the event of the symptoms not being detected for a lengthy period of time, the bearing could become detached from the universal joint. The vehicle’s steerability would then be impaired, which could increase the risk of accidents.

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) recalls certain GLE and GLS passenger vehicles

May 26, 2021

Motor Distributors Limited (Mercedes-Benz) is carrying out a voluntary recall on a number of their passenger vehicles models, including the following: GLE and GLS.

A safety issue has been identified whereby in certain vehicles of its GLE and GLS series (BR 167), the condensed water drainage hose of the air-conditioning system may not be properly fitted. In this case condensed water from the air conditioning system could enter the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Condensed water would enter in the left or right foot well and could cause corrosion in the electrical components installed there and/or lead to short-circuits or leakage currents. This would increase the risk of fire from short circuits. Furthermore, the automatic emergency call (eCall) could fail, the vehicle could fail to unlock and/or start, and the engine emergency run could also be activated in an on-road vehicle. This would increase the risk of injury and accident.

The risk of fire in the event of an accident might thus not be reduced as intended.

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.
Previously the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) provided information on vehicle safety related recalls in Ireland. The Road Safety Authority (RSA) has now been appointed by the Department of Transport (DoT) as the Automotive Market Surveillance Authority (AMSA) and will provide information for safety related recalls on motor vehicle categories M, N and O.
The AMSA is notified of vehicles which are subject to recall through an EU portal called Rapid Exchange of Information System (RAPEX).
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 2020 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 licensing 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]
