TOKYO — Scandal-tainted Mitsubishi Motors Corp. said Tuesday it will revise its organization, effective next Tuesday, to speed up its decision-making process and clarify responsibilities.

The new organization, which will have 131 departments, down from the current 230, will include changes designed to restore consumer trust in Mitsubishi Motors that has been damaged by multiple vehicle defect cover-ups, the company said.

In the new organization, the chief executive officer will supervise departments related to overall management of the Mitsubishi Motors group, while the chief operating officer will supervise departments executing business operations, the company said.

Newly established divisions reporting directly to the CEO include the Corporate Social Responsibility Promotion Office, Finance Group Headquarters and Group Corporate Strategy Office.

New ones reporting directly to the COO include the Quality Affairs Office, Corporate Staff Office and Product Operations Group Headquarters.

Of those newly established sections, the CSR Promotion Office will keep watch over Mitsubishi Motors’ relationship with customers and compliance issues. Based on information from customers, corporate auditors and whistle-blowers, the office will report to top management and propose and follow up on countermeasures and new measures to improve corporate culture.

The restructured organization will also include a business ethics committee consisting mainly of experts from outside the company, which will supervise the company’s efforts to honor its pledge to place utmost importance on customers, safety and quality.
