See how our broad family of materials and global development experts can help the automotive industry reduce emissions and improve fuel economy, design, safety, and affordability. This international standard is intended to provide comprehensive requirements for the performance classification and labeling of chemical protective clothing.
Also, if a specific CPC selection fails to perform as intended in the work environment, the objective measurements provide a means to select higher performing iiso.
Will the chemical be a solid, liquid, or gas when the worker is potentially exposed? This could be a one-piece coverall or a two-piece suit, with or without hood or visor, with or without boot-socks.
After that exposure, the outer test protective ido is opened and an inner indicator garment is checked for evidence of liquid penetration.
Classification, labelling and performance requirements.
How ISO Can Assist the Safety Professional — Occupational Health & Safety

For companies engaged in the same work tasks in different parts of the world and without access to the same CPC, the ISO description of CPC performance provides a common description that can be used to select the appropriate, locally available CPC.
Classification, labelling and performance requirements Status: The combination of whole garment and component testing ensures the sum of the parts is able to provide the appropriate protection. With each suit, the manufacturer should provide complete instructions, including safety considerations, limitations, and user instructions, as well as inspection, warranty, and maintenance information.
Nor is there a common way to describe the isk performance of the protective ensemble or the performance of the ensemble’s components against different chemical threats. Our expertise and global reach help promote safety and health for the planet and its inhabitants.
