This document specifies minimum performance requirements for protective clothing designed to be worn during firefighting activities. The requirements are detailed in this document covering heat and flame, mechanical, chemical, comfort, visibility, etc.

This document covers the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels of the material used, the methods of test to be used to determine these performance levels, marking and information supplied by the manufacturer.

This document makes distinction between firefighting activities dividing them into two performance levels based on a risk assessment:

Level 1: specifies the minimum requirements for firefighting clothing involving work associated with outdoor firefighting and their support activities, taking into account the environments and conditions of the expected operational scenarios of such firefighting activities.

The level 1 is not applicable for protection against risks encountered in fighting fires or rescue from fire activities in structures, unless combined to a level 2 or other specialised PPE.

Level 2: specifies the minimum requirements for firefighting clothing for risks encountered in fighting fires and rescue from fire in structures.

The distinction between Level 1 and Level 2 clothing is restricted to the requirements on heat and flame (X1 or X2 - Heat and Flame). These levels of protection can be reached by a single or a combination of separate garments.

Additional marking provides two grades of protection for Y (protection against water penetration) and Z (water vapour resistance). It is essential that these performance grades are indicated on the marking of the clothing and explained in the instructions for use.

This document does not cover protective clothing for specialized tasks or specific risk situations e.g. wildland firefighting, specialized firefighting and/or advanced technical rescue operations dealing with hazardous chemicals, working with chainsaws and water and rope rescue.

This document does not cover protection for the head, hands and feet or specific protection against other hazards e.g. chemical, biological, radiological and electrical hazards. These aspects may be covered in other European Standards.

This part of ISO 16000 concerns a method for the determination of primary, secondary and tertiary aliphatic and aromatic amines in indoor air using accumulated sampling and high-performance liquid-chromatography (HPLC) coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS) or high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS). This standard specifies the sampling procedure for determining the mass concentration of amines as mean values by sampling the amines on phosphoric acid impregnated filters. The analytical procedure of the measurement method is covered by ISO 16000-39.

Measurements, performed with samplers containing phosphoric acid-impregnated inert supporting material and operating at specified flow rates for specified sampling periods are described in this document. Requirements regarding sample volume are defined.

The range of application of this International Standard concerning the concentrations of amines in indoor air depends on the linear range of the calibration line and hence on the gas sample volume (here: from 5 l up to 100 l), the eluate volume (from 1 ml up to 5 ml), the injection volume (from 1 μl up to 10 μl) and the sensitivity of the analytical equipment (e.g. linear range from 2 pg up to 2 ng amine). The range of application can be expected to be from approximately 0,002 μg/m3 (100 l sample) up to 2 000 μg/m3 (5 l sample) for a common analytical equipment (e.g. Waters „TQ-D") for the majority of the amines listed in Annex A. The analysis of derivatives of ethanolamine is usually about 10 times more sensitive and the analysis of short-chained aliphatic amines is usually about 10 times less sensitive than the analysis of an average amine.

Although primarily intended for the measurement of amines listed in Annex A, this International Standard may be used also for the measurement of other amines in indoor air.

This International Standard describes procedures for the fabrication and gives requirements for the use of glass tubes containing impregnated filters out of phosphoric acid-impregnated glass wool as samplers, but does not exclude other samplers with proven equal or improved properties. This Standard also gives procedures for the demonstration of equivalence of other sampler types or methods.

This International Standard does not cover the determination of amines in other media like water or soil. Furthermore, it does not cover the determination of isocyanates in indoor air as corresponding amines (covered by ISO 17734 Part 1 and 2). Also quaternary amines are not included in this International Standard.

ISO 16000 Part 39 – in combination with ISO 16000 Part 38 – specifies the measurement method for determining the mass concentration of primary, secondary and tertiary aliphatic and aromatic amines in indoor air using accumulated sampling and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS) or high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS). The analytical procedure is covered by this standard. The sampling procedure and the manufacturing of the samplers are covered by ISO 16000 Part 38.

ISO 16000-39 mentions specifications for the chromatography and the mass spectroscopy for the amines. Measurement results are expressed in μg/m3.

Although primarily intended for the measurement of amines listed in Table A.1 in Annex A of this International Standard, it may be used also for the measurement of other amines in indoor air. This International Standard gives instructions and describes procedures for the inclusion of other amines.

The range of application of this International Standard concerning the concentrations of amines in indoor air depends on the linear range of the calibration line and hence on the gas sample volume (here: from 5 l up to 100 l), the eluate volume (from 1 ml up to 5 ml), the injection volume (from 1 μl up to 10 μl) and the sensitivity of the analytical equipment (e.g. linear range from 2 pg up to 2 ng amine).

The analysis of derivatives of ethanolamine is usually about 10 times more sensitive and the analysis of short-chained aliphatic amines is usually about 10 times less sensitive than the analysis of an average amine.

This International Standard can be used also for the determination of amines in water if the detection limit is sufficient.

This International Standard does not cover the determination of isocyanates in indoor air (nor in water samples) as corresponding amines (covered by ISO 17734 Part 1 and 2).

This document specifies requirements for construction, design, performance, marking and user information for earmuffs attached to head protection and/or face protection devices, hereinafter referred to as ‘mounted earmuffs’.

In particular, it specifies the sound attenuation of mounted earmuffs, measured in accordance with EN ISO 4869-1.

Because one model of earmuffs designed to be attached to head protection and/or face protection devices can be fitted to a number of other models and sizes of the carrier, this part of the standard sets out a series of physical and acoustic requirements for earmuffs when fitted to the specified model(s) or size(s) of head protection and/or face protection device.

All requirements apply to earmuffs fitted to one of the specified models or sizes of head protection and/or face protection device (the basic combination). An abbreviated set of requirements applies to the same model of earmuffs when fitted to the other specified models or sizes of head protection and/or face protection device (the supplementary combinations).

Information shall be given on the range of models of carriers tested with the earmuffs which satisfies this document.

Ergonomic aspects are addressed by taking into account, within the requirements, the interaction between the user, the device and, where possible, the working environment in which the device is likely to be used (see Annex ZA and EN 458).

This Standard specifies a test and assessment method for determining the contribution made by fire protection systems to the fire resistance of structural steel beams, I and H sections, in the horizontal plane containing openings in the web which may affect the structural performance of the beam. It is applicable to beams subjected to 3 or 4 sided fire exposure.

For any cellular beam with a single web opening or where the web openings are considered to be of small diameter in relation to the web depth the applicability of this Standard shall be determined by a structural engineer

The Standard applies to fire protection materials that have already been tested and assessed in accordance with ISO 834-10 and ISO 834-11 and cannot be used in isolation. It covers fire protection systems that include both passive and reactive materials which follow the section profile as defined in this document.

Use of ISO 834-13 requires the multi-temperature analysis (MTA) derived from ISO 834-11 as the basis for determining the thickness of fire protection for beams with web openings. The MTA shall be carried out on the web and bottom flange separately generating an elemental multi-temperature analysis (EMTA). The bottom flange EMTA may be used as the top flange EMTA when a beam is subject to 4 sided exposure.

The standard contains the fire test methodology, which specifies the tests that shall be carried out to provide data on the thermal characteristics of the fire protection system when exposed to the standard temperature/time curve specified in ISO 834-1. It also contains the assessment, which prescribes how the analysis of the test data should be made and gives guidance on the procedures that should be undertaken.

The assessment procedure is used to establish:

a) On the basis of the temperature data derived from testing unloaded steel sections, the thermal response of the fire protection system on cellular beams, (the thermal performance).

b) The temperature ratio between the web post and the web reference temperature, which will vary depending on the web post width.

c) The temperature ratio between points around the web openings and the web reference area.

d) A structural model shall be used to derive limiting temperatures for cellular beams. These temperatures combined with b & c above will enable the determination of the correct fire protection thickness from the elemental multi temperature analysis from ISO 834-11.

e) A structural model shall be used to derive limiting temperatures for cellular beams using the data from b), c) and d) above.

This Standard specifies a test and assessment method for determining the contribution of fire protection systems to the fire resistance of circular and rectangular solid steel bar. For other section shapes such as; angles, channels and flats reference should be made to ISO 834-10 and ISO 834-11. The standard cannot be used for twisted wire and is not suitable for cold or hot rolled steel bar primarily used for the reinforcement of concrete.

The standard is applicable for the protection of solid bar up to a maximum diameter of 130 mm and in the case of rectangular bar the maxiumum side length shall be limited to 130 mm with a maximum aspect ratio of 2:1 against the shorter length side. Beyond these limits the dimensions are covered in ISO 834-10 and ISO 834-11.

The standard may be used for any applied fire protection system including multi-layered systems provided they have demonstrated their integrity/ stickability when tested on floor beams and hollow sections under load, and assessed up to the maximum protection thickness in accordance with ISO 834-11. It is applicable to reactive fire protection materials (intumescent coatings) and passive materials which include sprays, board, slabs and preformed casings which are either in intimate contact with the bar, or which include an airspace between the bar and the protection system. The method used for applying/ fixing the fire protection to solid bar should be the same as that used in the protection of the steel floor beams or hollow sections. The standard contains the fire test methodology, which specifies the tests that shall be carried out to provide data on the thermal characteristics of the fire protection system when exposed to the standard temperature/time curve specified in ISO 834-1. It also contains the assessment, which prescribes how the analysis of the test data should be made and gives guidance on the procedures by which interpolation should be undertaken. This standard does not incorporate a loaded test on a tension member.

The standard caters for testing in both the vertical and horizontal orientations at the discretion of the sponsor. Results from horizontally orientated bar may be applied to any orientaion, whilst results from vertically orientated bar shall only apply to that orientation.

The limits of applicability of the results of the assessment arising from the fire test are defined together with permitted direct application of the results to different steel types and sizes over the range of thicknesses of the applied fire protection system tested.

The assessment procedure is used to establish:

— on the basis of temperature data derived from testing steel bars, any practical constraints on the use of the fire protection system under fire test conditions, (the physical performance);

— on the basis of the temperature data derived from testing steel bars, the thermal properties of the fire protection system, (the thermal performance).

The limits of applicability of the results of the assessment arising from the fire test are defined together with permitted direct application of the results to different steel types and sizes of steel bar over the range of thicknesses of the applied fire protection system tested.

This test procedure only applies to the fire protection materials that have previously tested and assessed in accordance with ISO 834-10 and ISO 834-11.

This document specifies a method for the measurement of 99Tc in all types of waters by liquid scintillation counting (LSC).

The method is applicable to test samples of supply/drinking water, rainwater, surface and ground water, as well as cooling water, industrial water, domestic, and industrial wastewater after proper sampling and handling, and test sample preparation. A filtration of the test sample is necessary.

The detection limit depends on the sample volume and the instrument used. The method described in this standard, using currently available LSC counters, has a detection limit of approximately 5 Bq·kg-1 to 20 Bq·kg-1, which is lower than the WHO criteria for safe consumption of drinking water (100 Bq·l-1). These values can be achieved with a counting time of 30 min for a sample volume varying between 14 ml to 40 ml. The method presented in this standard is not intended for the determination of ultra-trace amount of 99Tc.

The activity concentration values in this document are expressed by sample mass unit instead of sample volume unit as it is usually the case in similar standards. The reason is that 99Tc is measured in various matrix types such as fresh water or sea water, which have significant density differences. The activity concentration values can be easily converted to sample volume unit by measuring the sample volume. However, it increases the uncertainty on the activity concentration result.

The method described in this standard is applicable in the event of an emergency situation, but not if 99mTc is present at quantities that could cause interference and not if 99mTc is used as a recovery tracer.

The analysis of Tc adsorbed to suspended matter is not covered by this method.

It is the user’s responsibility to ensure the validity of this test method for the water samples tested.

The method is applicable to test samples of supply/drinking water, rainwater, surface and ground water, as well as cooling water, industrial water, domestic, and industrial wastewater. A filtration of the test sample is necessary.

The detection limit depends on the sample volume and the instrument used. The method described in this standard, using currently available ICP-MS, has a detection limit of approximately 0,2 ng·kg-1 to 0,5 ng·kg-1 (0,1 Bq·kg-1 to 0,3 Bq·kg-1), which is much lower than the WHO criteria for safe consumption of drinking water (100 Bq·l-1).
