This CEN Workshop Agreement aims at increasing the protection of those initially and primarily involved with any CBRN incident. This will cover Emergency Responders, Duty Holders, and Responsible Persons, Employers and Victims or potential victims. All of these people are potentially at risk from a CBRN incident. This CWA provides both general guidance and codes of practice and requirements, testing, marking and certification of PPE to be applied in CBRN situations. This CWA gives guidance on selection, as well as safety and effectiveness of PPE for CBRN scenarios. For use, care and maintenance the manufacturer’s instructions have to be regarded. This CWA contains guidance and risk assessment templates, which will allow those at risk to determine what level of risk this could be and the PPE required protecting the designated groups we have identified. Additional issues such as instruction, training and use of PPE are also addressed. The management of any CBRN incident requires a variety of skills and those persons responsible should also refer to CWA 16107.
