Suzuki chairman Osamu Suzuki to step down as CEO over false tests.
Executive vice president Osamu Honda also to retire over use of wrong mileage testing methods.

Quote:
Suzuki will stay on as chairman, the company said, adding that executive vice president Osamu Honda will retire.

Japan’s No. 4 automaker by sales said in May it had used wrong tests to calculate mileage for models going back to 2010, submitting figures compiled from indoor tests performed on individual parts, rather than vehicle coasting tests.
Suzuki said it plans to introduce improvements including better training for engineers and strengthening of its mileage testing systems. It would also encourage whistle-blowing,

Harsh punishments for automakers in Japan for erroneous fuel testing methods in Future.


Quote:
The Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry released Friday a draft report that includes plans for harsh punishments on automakers found to have committed wrongdoing in the future.
Quote:
In the event that wrongdoing is found, punitive measures would be imposed on automakers. These could include announcing the incident and subsequent rejection by government authorities of the automaker's applications for model codes. Moreover, ongoing national inspections of other vehicles by a manufacturer that committed wrongdoing could also be suspended. The transport ministry also plans to tighten inspections on automakers for a specified period, including more frequent attendance by national inspectors - who would arrive without prior notice - at their vehicle tests
Quote:
In the review, the ministry recognizes a flaw in the national inspection system, stating that "the government has conducted no particular checks of its own regarding data provided by automakers, based on a trusting relationship."
