NATIONAL PARTS RETURN PROGRAM, VOLUME I
The National Parts Return Program involves the voluntary submittal by independent automotive repair facilities of failed automotive components and information. The purpose of the program is to gather information on these components and failure reports to assist the NHTSA in identifying the existence of safety-related manufacturing defects in design, materials, construction or performance of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment. Under authority of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, as amended, the NHTSA can require manufacturers to conduct safety defect recall campaigns when it has been determined that a defect relating to motor vehicle safety exists. In addition, the information obtained from these parts and reports is valuable in preparing Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
