I cannot speak for SSCC. My SFI validation date tag is June 2020. During the NORC, last May, the inspector said my seat belts were expired. I said, " did you look at the manufacture tag date.?" He said, "No" After he looked at the tag, he said that my harnesses were OK. At that point I briefed him about the entire SFI validation/manufacture tag date issue. Now he knows. Had no issues for the SSCC in September. Steve Mott knows about the issue. I don't know if the correct word filters down to the entire inspection team. If you get a new inspector, you may have to educate them. BBORR is very knowledgeable on this issue and are doing it the right way. That is the reason I always buy Crow harnesses--They include the manufacture date.
