  • Description:
    "National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) specifies minimum approval requirements for respiratory protective devices in Title 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 84. NIOSH reviews respirator approval applications, which contain technical specifications, drawings, and other related information. NIOSH also inspects, examines and tests the respirators to determine that the applicable requirements are met for individual, completely assembled respirators, as described in 84.30(a). The use of the NIOSH label obligates the applicant to whom it was issued to maintain the quality level of manufactured respirators and assure that the RPD is manufactured to the drawings and specifications upon which the certificate of approval is based, (484.33[f]). Approval labels contain important information to assist users in understanding the respirator, its protections, cautions and limitations, and approved configuration of components." - NIOSHTIC-2
