Takata successor's faulty seat belts number 9m: ministry

Joyson Safety Systems Japan also accused of falsifying child seat data

TOKYO -- The automotive supplier formerly known as Takata delivered as many as 9 million seat belts that do not meet quality standards to domestic customers, the Japanese government said Thursday.

The Transport Ministry based the figure on a report provided by Joyson Safety Systems Japan, Takata's successor. Those substandard belts were produced at one domestic plant, which altered test data to clear safety requirements.
