This coming March will be held in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) a new meeting of the ISO Workgroups relating to the standards of PPE. These meetings, held between 10th to 14th March, conclude in a plenary meeting on the same day 14.
This committe will meet the following workgroups:
ISO SC13 WG2 Heat & Flame – Test Methods
WG3 Chemical Protective Clothing
WG5 Mechanical Protective Clothing
One of the main objectives of these meetings is to normalize and standardize the known THERMOMAN / FLASH FIRE / MANIKIN TEST because, for the moment, there is a very large in terms of the results reported by different laboratories from the same sample tested disparity.
In the coming months, we will know the conclusions resulting from these meetings.
