scope:

This document specifies guidance on how to conduct fit testing of tight-fitting respiratory protective device (RPD) and on appropriate methods to be used.

A complete RPD programme is defined in ISO/TS 16975-1.

This document specifies requirements for conducting RPD fit testing and includes

- qualifications/competences of fit-test operators,

- specific fit-testing procedures,

- interpretation of fit-test results, and

- record keeping.

A fit test is not required for escape-only RPD.
