The head of the National Standards Authority of Ireland has said that there will be action taken here over the Volkswagen emissions rigging scandal.
It is thought around 80,000 cars could be affected in Ireland.
The company said that it will contact owners with details of how to get the software "corrected", although it reiterates all vehicles are technically safe.
CEO of the NSAI, Maurice Buckley, said that they are on the case and are awaiting information from a European investigation into the scandal.
"once the information comes through and once information relevant to Ireland id there, we're working with the department of Transport, with the RSA, and there will be action taken in Ireland," he said.
"We don't have car manufacturers in Ireland, so the cars affected are not an immediate problem at the approval level in Ireland, but of course obviously consumers are affected and … it's going to impact on the value of the car."
