NIOSH Solicits Comment on Personal Protective Technologies Conformity Assessment


The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) announce the availability of the PPT Conformity Assessment Docket, NIOSH Docket 237, and solicit input from interested parties.

The docket is being established to provide interested parties the opportunity to provide input to the NIOSH and NPPTL strategy to address the recommendations issued in November 2010 by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in its report, "Certifying Personal Protective Technologies: Improving Worker Safety." The report focuses on the need for a consistent risk-based approach to personal protective technologies (PPT) conformity assessment. This docket will be available until July 1, 2011. All comments will be assessed as part of the effort to address the IOM recommendations. Visit:
