|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This Standard specifies performance requirements and test methods for face protectors marketed, sold, and intended for ringette.

Participation in ringette implies the acceptance of some risk of injury. Use of a face protector meeting the requirements of this Standard will not prevent all injuries.
