This International Standard specifies test methods and minimum requirements for protective clothing used by firefighters who are engaged in support activities for fire fighting and not interior attack fire fighting. These support activities are defined (see Clause 3.1.16) as activities such as: This International Standard covers the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels of the materials used, and the methods of test for determining these performance levels. This International standard is not equivalent to ISO 11999 Part 3 – clothing worn by firefighters who are at risk of exposure to high levels of heat and/ or flame while fighting fires occurring in structures, but this international standard provides lower minimum level of protection. This International standard defines clothing worn by firefighters who are engaged in support activities associated with structural firefighting but not for structural firefighting. Selection of the appropriate system of clothing is dependent on carrying out an effective risk assessment which identifies the hazards to be faced, evaluates the likelihood of those hazards, and provides the means to reduce or eliminate these hazards. Details on one example at a recommended risk assessment approach and some factors for consideration are included in annex A This International Standard does not cover special clothing for use in other high risk situations such as specialized firefighting, or clothing for use in long term firefighting operations in high ambient temperature, for example bush, wildland, or forest firefighting where clothing according to ISO 15384 could be more appropriate. It does not cover clothing for use in high-risk fire exposures, for example reflective protective clothing according to ISO 15538 could be more appropriate. It does not cover protection for the head, hands and feet or protection against other hazards, for example chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards. These aspects may be dealt with in other standards.

This European standard describes a thermophysiological model (thermalhuman simulator) that uses the output data of the first part to obtainphysiological heat load criteria that predicts the (maximal) duration ofwork in the protective clothing in fire fighters’ relevant conditions.NOTE The human simulator method using the Sweating Torso (i.e.coupling of the instrumented manikin with a thermo-physiologicalfeedback model) is validated for different scenarios by comparison tohuman subject trials(1, 2). The scenarios also included warm and hotenvironments as can be expected for firefighter applications. Coretemperature, being one of the most important physiological variables,and mean skin temperature, which is a useful indicator of thermal comfortsensation and of the overall condition of the body, are chosen as relevantphysiological parameters for the thermophysiological human simulator.

This European Standard specifies the Sweating Torso as a method tomeasure the coupled heat and mass transfer through protective clothingin fire fighters’ specific conditions.NOTE The Sweating Torso is developed to perform highly reproduciblelaboratory tests for heat and mass transfer on clothing systems undercontrolled conditions which are closely correlated to real conditions. TheSweating Torso is a cylinder with the same size as a human trunk. Thelayers of the measurement cylinder are made of compact Teflon,polyethylene and aluminium. Due to this combination of materials,transient processes can be modelled. Thus, changes in the skin and coretemperature can be simulated. The Sweating Torso contains a total of 54independently-controlled sweating nozzles. In order to avoid any axialheat loss, the cylinder has a heated guard at each end. The cylinder andthe thermal guards are heated electrically using heating foils. TheSweating Torso can be run either with constant surface temperature orwith constant heating. The whole Sweating Torso is placed on aprecision scale to assess the evaporated and condensed amount ofwater.

This International Standard provides the principles that govern the development of incident type and/or hazard specific test methods and minimum performance requirements for protective footwear for firefighters while engaged in specialist rescue activities. Footwear related to specific specialist rescue activities, e.g.Road Traffic Crash, (RTC), Urban Search & Rescue, (USAR) are documented in individual subsections of this Standard. The purpose of this International Standard is to ensure minimum performance requirements for incident type and/or hazard specific protective footwear are designated. Subsections of this International Standard cover general footwear design, the minimum performance level of the materials used and the methods of test for determining this performance level. Subsections of this International Standard do not cover special footwear for use in other high risk situations such as structural firefighting. Subsections of this International Standard do not cover protection for the head, torso, arms, hands and legs or protection of the feet against other hazards, e.g. chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards, except for limited, accidental exposure to fire ground chemicals and contaminated blood or body fluids. Selection of the appropriate system of Personal Protective Equipment, (PPE), including footwear, is dependent on carrying out an effective risk assessment which identifies the hazard to be faced, evaluates the likelihood of those hazards and provides the means of reducing or eliminating these hazards.

This International Standard (parts 1-10) provides the principles that govern the development of incident type and/or hazard specific minimum test methods including design and performance requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by firefighters and other rescue workers to reduce injury and/or the loss of life while engaged in rescue activities. To assist with selection based on a user risk assessment, type of PPE, (if applicable) and performance levels, for different categories of protection are included. This standard covers PPE for use in rescue activities for road traffic crash (RTC) and urban search and rescue (USAR). The scope of this International Standard does not include PPE for use in high risk fire exposures. Similarly, this Standard does not include PPE to protect against chemical and biological hazards, except against short term and accidental exposures whilst engaged in rescue activities. This part of ISO 18639 describes the general structure of the Standards including each subsection, sets design and performance requirements for PPE and includes requirements for marking and manufacturer’s instructions.

This International Standard specifies test methods and minimum performance requirements for protective clothing for firefighters while engaged in rescue activities. Clothing related to specific rescue activities are documented in individual subsections of this Standard, 6.2 Road Traffic Crash, (RTC) or 6.3 Urban Search & Rescue, (USAR). Subsections of this International Standard cover general clothing design, the minimum performance level of the materials used and the methods of test for determining this performance level. This International Standard does not cover special clothing for use in other high risk situations such as fire fighting. It does not cover protection for the head, hands and feet or protection against other hazards, e.g. chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards, except for limited, accidental exposure to fireground chemicals and contaminated blood or other body fluids.

This document specifies requirements for the safety of children's sleep bags which are used in the children's sleeping environment (i.e. not under supervision), and designed to provide sufficient warmth so as to remove the need for additional bedding when sleeping in a cot or similar product (e.g. crib/cradle) in which a child is contained. It is applicable to products for use by younger children based on the ability of the children to not being able to climb out of the cot (approximately under the age of 24 months).NOTE The informative Annex D lists topics of further investigations, which might lead to necessary improvement of the safety requirements of children's sleep bags.This document does not apply to products designed for use during the care of premature children or children of low birthweight or for outdoor use or to products designed to keep a child warm in a pushchair or car seats (e.g. foot muff).If a part of the children's sleep bag is designed to offer additional function (e.g. play function), this part will, in addition to the following requirements, be subjected to safety requirements related to relevant standards (see A.1).
