With the implementation of the OSAC and the associated Footwear and Tire Subcommittee, SWGTREAD decided to discontinue its operations and focus its efforts on supporting the subcommittee. It is the goal of the subcommittee to transition the SWGTREAD work products to the OSAC. However, it is not clear how SWGTREAD’s online resources (the website and forum) will be transitioned to the OSAC so these resources will remain available until a suitable mechanism is identified. Existing SWGTREAD standards and guidelines will remain in effect (and available at this website) until comparable OSAC documents become available.
Please refer to the OSAC website, including the subcommittee’s page, for additional information and updates.
