Web Sling & Tie Down Association

Web Sling & Tie Down Association The Web Sling & Tie Down Association (WSTDA) is a tax-exempt, non-profit, technical association dedicated to the development and promotion of voluntary recommended standards and associated reference materials.
(1)

Originally established in 1973 as the Web Sling Association (WSA), the WSA serviced the synthetic web sling industry. In 1988, the WSA further defined its purpose to include synthetic web tie downs and became the Web Sling & Tie Down Association. Today, members of the WSTDA include manufacturers and suppliers of synthetic web slings and tie downs, polyester roundslings, synthetic webbing, fibers, thread and related components.

Mission: WSTDA's mission is to foster and further, in every lawful manner, the common interests of its members and industry. The WSTDA will: Promote dynamic relationships among its members and provide a forum for sharing information to improve quality and safety. Educate members and users by developing and publishing voluntary industry standards and allied reference materials. Serve as an information source to assist users and enforcement agencies in the proper selection, safe use, care and inspection of synthetic slings, tie downs and related load securement products. Cooperate with government agencies and other organizations having interest in the synthetic sling and tie down industry. Represent its members and the industry before governmental agencies, related organizations and the public. Conduct beneficial research and testing for our membership and cooperate with private and government agencies similarly engaged.

In response to requests for information and advice on whether users may attempt to disinfect synthetic web slings, roundslings or tie downs in order to prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, the WSTDA Legal Resource Committee has developed a statement notifying the industry that “WSTDA is not aware of any proven way to disinfect synthetic slings and tie downs that will prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 virus or that will ensure or certify the absence of the COVID-19 virus once the slings have been disinfected.” Read More: http://ow.ly/uswc30qzCML
