SFI strives to equally serve the manufacturers, consumers, sanctioning bodies, racers and government agencies through fairness, efficiency and respect.
The agreement reached between SFI and Stealth Mark signifies significant advancement in SFI’s technology in their certification process, ensuring compliance to SFI quality standards, and to thwart the emergence of counterfeit parts and non‐compliant parts in the motorsports industry. Initial efforts to integrate into SFI’s existing processes are already underway and production‐ level activities utilizing the complete Stealth Mark™ technology suite, including its software, hardware, and marking systems, are scheduled to commence immediately and expand at various intervals over the coming year.
