This document specifies the requirements for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) clothing ensembles excluding respiratory protective devices (RPD) for use by emergency responders and other workers during incidents involving chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) materials –
— used with intent to cause harm; and
— in cases of accidental releases outside traditional hazardous materials response categories or in the case naturally occurring biological events.
For the purposes of this standard, all incidents described here are named CBRN incidents.
This standard is applicable to PPE for use by personnel in the following roles where appropriate:
— First responders: including fire service, emergency medical, search and rescue, sampling and detection teams and police.
— Workers needed for specific support roles (for example utility, transportation, service continuity, environmental protection).
— Medical personnel working with casualties of CBRN incidents.
— Responders to incidents involving radiological or nuclear material release.
— Non-emergency but CBRN-related roles.
Excluded:
— Protection against ionizing radiological exposures
— Requirements for PPE use by military personnel are not addressed by this document.
Requirements for the following are not covered by this document:
— Casualty/body bags.
— Methods of and criteria for decontamination of PPE.
— Disposal of used or contaminated equipment.
This document is focused on PPE clothing ensembles, but it is recognised that CBRN PPE usually forms part of an ensemble potentially including RPD where the RPD provide protection to a portion of the
individual wearer’s body. For this reason, where RPD affects the integrity of the ensemble in preventing skin exposure to the wearer, ensembles with specific RPD are evaluated in several whole ensemble
tests. Any requirements for respiratory protective device itself would need to meet the requirements is the ISO 17420 series (including specifically ISO 17420 Part 2 and ISO/TS 17420 Parts 8 and 9), as recommended.
It is further recommended that the computability of all PPE be evaluated as specified in ISO/TS 20141:2022 and the selection of appropriate respirators as part of these ensembles be made as indicated in ISO/TS 16975:2016

This European Standard specifies the performance classification and test methods for materials used in chemical protective clothing, including gloves and footwear. The gloves and boots should have the same chemical protective barrier requirements as the fabric when an integral part of the clothing. This is a reference standard to which chemical protective clothing performance standards may refer in whole or in part, but this standard is not exhaustive in the sense that product standards may well require testing according to test method standards which are not included in this standard.
While these performance levels are intended to relate to the usage to which the chemical protective clothing is to be put, it is essential that the chemical protective clothing manufacturer or supplier indicate the intended use of the protective clothing and that the user (specifier) carries out a risk assessment in order to establish the correct performance level for the intended task.

This document specifies general requirements for eye and face protectors. These protectors are intended to provide protection for the eyes and faces of persons against one or more common occupational hazards such as impacts from flying particles and fragments, optical radiation, dusts, splashing liquids, molten metals, heat, flame, hot solids, harmful gases, vapours and aerosols.
Additional requirements for eye and face protectors used during welding and related techniques and for mesh protectors are given in ISO 16321-2 and ISO 16321-3, respectively.
This document applies to:
— all plano as well as corrective and prescription lensed protectors and components;
— those eye and face protectors used for occupational-type tasks that are performed similarly to an occupation, e.g. "do-it-yourself";
— those eye and face protectors used in educational establishments.
This document does not apply to:
— protectors specifically intended for protection against only solar radiation and used in non- occupational environments for which the ISO 12312 series applies;
— protectors for medically prescribed applications (not occupational), e.g. eye protection for severe dry eye, tints prescribed for medical conditions;
— patient eye protectors during diagnosis or treatment (e.g. ISO/TR 22463);
— protectors for use during medical or e.g. aesthetic applications, e.g. intense light sources (ILS) for which the ISO 12609 series applies;
— protectors specifically intended for sports for which the ISO 18527 series applies;
— laser protectors;
— face protectors intended for live-working to protect against short-circuit electric arcs for which IEC 62819 applies;
— protectors intended to protect against ionizing radiation, e.g. X-rays, for which IEC 61331-3 applies.

This document specifies a test method for determining the liquid tightness of clothing for protection against rain, using a static manikin exposed to large amount of high energy droplets from above. It is applicable to the testing of jackets, trousers, coats and one- or two-piece suits.
This document is not applicable to the testing of garments for resistance to other weather conditions, e.g. snow, hail-, or strong winds.

This document specifies requirements and test methods for the performance of materials and readymade garments for protection against the effects of precipitation (e.g. rain, snowflakes), fog and ground humidity. Garments for protection against other effects than precipitation (e.g. water splashes,
waves) are excluded from this document. The protective effects and requirements of footwear, gloves and separate headwear are excluded from the scope of this document.

This document specifies requirements and gives test methods for physical properties of single-use medical gloves (i.e. surgical gloves and examination/procedure gloves) in order to ensure that they provide and maintain in use an adequate level of protection from cross contamination for both patient and user.
This document does not specify the size of a lot. Attention is drawn to the difficulties that can be associated with the distribution and control of very large lots. The recommended maximum individual lot size for production is 500 000.
