Over deze norm
This standard specifies test methods and minimum requirements for clothing to be worn during firefighting operations and associated activities where there is a risk of heat and/or flame. It covers: the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels. The required performance levels may be achieved by the use of one or more garments. It does not cover special clothing for use in high risk situations, e.g. fire entry suits, or clothing for use in long term firefighting operations in high ambient temperatures, e.g. forest firefighting. It does not cover protection for the head, hands and feet or protection against hazards, e.g. chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards. These aspects may be dealt with in other standards.
