While production information would be useful, neither NAR nor Tripoli have any legal authority to require corporations to provide manufacturing data, which could be considered business sensitive or proprietary information.Steve,
Approaching this from a safety standpoint, it should be mandatory for manufacturers to provide MESS and manufacturing data openly, and in a timely manner, with Rocketeers. Both Tripoli & the NAR should have this information on their websites. The "Standards & Testing" people should tasked to oversee this, in my opinion.
The manufacturers don’t currently receive MESS data, but they do know their own warranty statistics.
Our only legal authority is to certify motors as defined in NFPA 1125 and to certify users as described in NFPA 1127.
