NATIONAL PARTS RETURN PROGRAM. VOLUME II. TECHNICAL REPORT
The National Parts Return Program involves the voluntary submittal by independent automative Repair shops of failed automotive components. The purpose of this program is to gather information on these components to assist the NHTSA to identify the existence of safety-related, manufacturing defects in design, materials, construction, on performance of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment. Under authority of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, and amendments to the Act in 1974, the NHTSA can require manufacturers to conduct safety defect notification campaigns when it has been determined that a defect relating to motor vehicle safety exists. In addition, the information obtained from these parts is also valuable in preparing Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
