Nissan admits tampering with data

Nissan Motor Co. said Monday that it had tampered with data on fuel economy and exhaust emissions at its five plants in the country, including the Tochigi plant in Kaminokawa, Tochigi Prefecture.

The automaker altered data of 1,171 vehicles, which is more than half for which it conducted sample inspections.

The latest data falsification once again brought to the fore Nissan’s sloppy inspection practices. Last year, Nissan admitted workers without proper authorization had conducted final inspections on some vehicles. Nissan continued to commit the falsification even after the revelation of this scandal.

According to Nissan, the automaker deliberately tampered with fuel economy and gas emission data if figures measured during sample inspections on finished vehicles substantially deviated from standards set by the company. Nissan said the original measured figures meet standards set by the government.



 見出しにあるtamper with /tˈæmpɚ/ を取り上げます。dataが後ろにくることから、記録などを勝手に書き換えることをさしていると考えられます。『ライトハウス英和辞典』(第5版 研究社)で調べると「…を勝手にいじる(変更する)」とありました。例として “The documents were tampered with.” で「書類は勝手にいじられた形跡があった。」と説明されています。

 LDOCEには “to touch something or make changes to it without permission, especially in order to deliberately damage it” と定義されています。
