DIRECTOR OF MOTOR VEHICLES IMPORTER TO FACE CHARGES FOR FORGING DOCUMENTS REALTED TO EXHAUST TESTS

On April 5, 2024, a 49-year-old director of a motor vehicle parallel importing company will appear in court to face charges for submitting forged documents to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in an attempt to obtain vehicle approval for registering imported motor vehicles, according to a Police media release.

Forged exhaust emission test reports

Between January and March 2020, the individual allegedly forged 14 exhaust emission test reports and submitted them to the LTA to support the company’s vehicle approval applications.

The applications aimed to obtain in-principle approval for the vehicles, which is a mandatory requirement before they can be registered for road use in Singapore.

To obtain vehicle approval, importers must submit documentation demonstrating that their vehicles comply with the necessary safety, technical, and exhaust emission standards.

Don’t play play with the authorities in Singapore

The LTA and the Singapore Police Force (SPF) take a stern view of such offenses and will thoroughly investigate suspected cases of forgery.

If found guilty under Section 468 of the Penal Code, the director may face imprisonment for up to 10 years, a fine, or both.

The SPF and LTA urge all motor dealers and importers to ensure the accuracy and authenticity of all documents and information submitted for vehicle approval.
