Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies minimum levels of performance requirements for protective clothing to be worn during firefighting operations, except protective clothing that is worn during fighting wildland fires (EN 15614) or bulk fires (EN 1486). The described clothing is not meant to protect against chemical and/or gas exposures. This European Standard covers the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels of the materials used, the methods of test to be used to determine these performance levels, and marking and information supplied by the manufacturer. The required performance levels may be achieved by the use of one or more garments. This European Standard covers the event of an accidental splash of chemical or flammable liquids but does not cover special clothing for use in other high-risk situations e.g. reflective protective clothing. It does not cover protection for the head, hands and feet or protection against other hazards e.g. chemical, biological, radiological and electrical hazards. These aspects may be covered in other European Standards.
