250.2. No person may install in a road vehicle or, for the purposes of such installations, sell, lease or place at the disposal of a person for valuable consideration, an air bag module, a seat belt with a pretensioner, or an air bag and seat belt electronic control module unless the equipment is new equipment originating from the manufacturer of the road vehicle and intended for such a vehicle. However, the equipment may be reinstalled in the same vehicle after being removed for the sole purpose of vehicle repairs or maintenance, provided it is in good working order.
No person may repair a module after the air bag has deployed or a seat belt with a pretensioner that has been activated. No person other than a person authorized by the manufacturer of the vehicle concerned may reprogram or repair an air bag or seat belt electronic control module.
The same prohibitions apply to offering to perform any of the acts referred to in the first or second paragraph.
The Société may, on the conditions it determines, exempt a person from the prohibitions of this section, except the prohibition to repair an air bag module and the prohibition to repair a seat belt.
