New SFI labeling?

Recommended Posts

I just received this from a supplier and do not know where to confirm. Any ideas?

 

Notes
SFI Transitioning to New Labels for Driver Restraints and Window Nets/Roll Cage Nets for 2017

In 2017, SFI Foundation, Inc. (SFI) changed the way its labels for Driver Restraints, Window Nets, and Roll Cage Nets are 
dated.

SFI implemented a New Label design which removed the punched-out month/year date of manufacture and
 instead incorporated a single expiration date pre-printed on the label. This system will eliminate the need for 
punch-dating of labels and aims to facilitate technical inspection of dated products in the field.

New Labels started to be used after January 1, 2017. An example of the new label (right), next to the old 
label (left) for comparison, is shown above.

The new labels are used for the following SFI products:Driver Restraints: SFI Specs 16.1, 16.2, 16.5, and 16.6Window Nets: SFI Spec 27.1Roll Cage Nets: SFI Spec 37.1

Labels will come out in 6-month segments per the chart shown above. These certified items may 
still be used for 2 years, the service life has not changed.

Be aware that product manufacturers are allowed to use the discontinued punch-date style 
labels (above left) until their existing supply runs out. Therefore, you may see the old-style labels on 
Driver Restraints and Window Nets/Roll Cage Nets for a while. Restraints or Nets with the old label 
may also still be used until they expire, which is 2 years from the date of manufacture punched on the tag.
