Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 25 September 2012
Status: active
Page Count: 46
ICS Code (Protective clothing): 13.340.10
scope:

This international standard (part 1-10) specifies minimum design and performance requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE) to be used by firefighters, primarily but not solely to protect against exposure to flame and high thermal loads.

To assist with choice based on user risk assessment, Types and performance levels for different categories of protection are included.

The scope of these International Standards does not include PPE for use in high risk fire exposures where for example, protective clothing with reflective surface according to ISO 15538 might be more appropriate, or for use in long-term fire fighting operations in high ambient temperature, for example bush, wildland, or forest fire fighting where equipment according to ISO 16073 might be more appropriate.

Similarly these Standards do not include PPE to protect against chemical and biological hazards, other than against short term and accidental exposure whilst engaged in firefighting and associated activities when fighting fires occurring in structures.

Part 1 describes the general structure of the standards, sets design and performance requirements for PPE and includes requirements for marking and manufacturer's instructions.
