In recent years there have been several recent Occurrence Reporting and Processing System occurrence reports written on the subject of suspect or counterfeit items or materials found in DOT tie-down ratchet assemblies. These tie-down assemblies contained materials (e.g., bolts) could be determined to be part of a safety class or safety significant structure, system or component whose failure could result in a loss of safety function, or present a hazard to the public or worker health and safety. The EFCOG P&T DOE Suspect/Counterfeit Ratchet Strap Tie-down Team determined that the best "path forward" was to clarify the necessary specifications for future procurement of these load tiedown devices.
