Fast-Track SWIFT is an expedited NAD challenge process designed for single-issue advertising cases.

In response to Dyson's SWIFT challenge, the advertiser informed NAD that, for independent reasons, it voluntarily decided to modify its advertising and affirmed that it would permanently discontinue the challenged claim. Therefore, NAD did not review this claim on its merits.
