  • Boeing (NYSE:BA) has used some products that were falsely certified by Kobe Steel (OTCPK:KBSTF, OTCPK:KBSTY), although it does not consider the issue a safety problem, Reuters reports.
  • Boeing is carrying out a survey of aircraft to determine the extent and type of Kobe Steel components in its planes and will share the results with airline customers, according to the report.
  • Even if the falsely certified parts do not affect safety, Boeing could choose to replace suspect parts rather than face any backlash over concerns about safety.
  • Airbus (OTCPK:EADSF, OTCPK:EADSY) says it does not buy products directly from Kobe Steel but is investigating whether any of its suppliers have been affected.
