ETC Projects & Responsibilities
Tool-maker matrix - NASTF is reviewing a replacement for the out-of-date Tool Matrix. For technicians, the Service Information Committee is responsible for information regarding the availability and information regarding diagnostic tools.
NASTF is also a resource for scan tool manufacturers who encounter gaps in available OEM information and thereby cannot complete the release of an effective scan tool. The NASTF SIR (www.nastf.org/FileSIR) is a feedback tool available for that use. All tool makers are first directed to resourses provided by the Equipment & Tool Institute (ETI).
