LTA re-introduces JEVIC inspection
July 6, 2016 6:13 pm
The Land Transport Authority is working towards reducing unscrupulous and unethical practices in the used vehicle industry through Japan Export Vehicle Inspection Center Company Limited.
The use of JEVIC is to ensure that only genuine vehicles are brought into the country.
JEVIC will conduct pre-shipment structural and mechanical inspection of used vehicles.
Chief Executive Officer, Naisa Tuinaceva says there have been number of cases whereby some Authorized Motor Vehicle Dealers have given false information to their customers and the customer have ended up with a defective vehicle.
He says there have been many cases of odometer-tampering and half-cut vehicles being sold, however with JEVIC appraisal in place, unscrupulous dealers will not be able to rip-off their customers as JEVIC will only issue a clean chit to those vehicles that meet the standards.
He says they have terminated the Authorized Motor Vehicle Dealers license of some vehicle dealers in the past and will continue to identify and penalize any dealer found to be breaching the conditions of the AMVD license.
