April 24, 2014: m-i-n-a.org website closing announcement.

m-i-n-a.org was originally established in 1997 to join as a common voice to correct the inequities being imposed upon the metric fastener importers and distributors by the Fastener Quality Act, and persisted until the final rule was published in 1999.
m-i-n-a.org continued to function through the corrections and modifications to the original 1999 rule which were last updated in 2008.
Since there has been no signiicant FQA99 activity for the the last 4 years, it is now time to close the website.

We have created a .zip file of the final published version of the m-i-n-a.org website
which may still be downloaded here.
