Toyota Motor on Thursday stated that it had verified that aluminum plates provided by Kobe Steel Ltd with falsified quality data which were used in parts for a few of the Japanese automaker’s vehicles had met safety and durability standards.

In a statement, Toyota stated that it was working to recognize whether non-aluminum items provided by Kobe Steel, which are used in the automaker’ Toyota- and Lexus-branded vehicles, will likewise meet the standards.

Kobe Steel previously this month admitted that it had falsified information on product quality and specifications for products provided to around 500 customers, rocking supply chains worldwide in a fresh blow to Japan’s credibility as a high-quality producer.
