"Subject: Runway Assessment and Condition Reporting, Effective October 1, 2016
Purpose: This SAFO serves to notify operators, pilots, training providers and other personnel of changes in runway condition reporting when a runway is other than dry. This change in reporting will be effective October 1, 2016.
Background: Following the runway overrun accident of a Boeing 737 at Chicago Midway airport in December of 2005, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry developed a new methodology for conveying actual runway conditions. This methodology communicates actual runway conditions to pilots in terms that directly relate to expected aircraft performance. This methodology was based on recommendations from the Takeoff and Landing Performance Assessment (TALPA) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC)."

"Pilot braking action reports will continue to be solicited and will be used in assessing braking performance. Effective October 1, 2016, the terminology ”Fair” will be replaced by “Medium” and pilot braking action reports will now describe conditions as Good, Good to Medium, Medium, Medium to Poor, or NIL. This will harmonize the NAS with ICAO standards."
