NOTICE FROM THE SFIadmin
Head and Neck Restraints must be recertified every five years to receive the SFI Foundation’s conformance sticker. A recent SFI Specification revision now requires that Head and Neck Restraint Devices which are certified to SFI Specification 38.1 be inspected and recertified every five (5) years, effective January 1, 2012. Any existing certified device with an SFI 38.1 conformance label must be sent back to the original manufacturer for inspection after five (5) years from the date of manufacture punched out on the label. Product inspection, maintenance, and/or replacement procedures will be per individual manufacturer. Inspection must be done by the original manufacturer only, and not their authorized resellers or dealers. When a device is determined by the original manufacturer to be acceptable for continued use, that manufacturer will affix a new SFI 38.1 conformance label marked with the inspection date and it will be valid for use for another five (5) years from that date.
