NIOSH Docket Number 39-A

Closed Circuit, Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is working to develop appropriate standards and test procedures for respiratory devices used to protect workers in hazardous environments. NIOSH has initiated a program to update portions of 42 CFR Part 84 to promote improved performance and reliability of Closed-Circuit Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (CC-SCBA).

This docket collects public comments related to the development of new, comprehensive standards for certifying CC-SCBA. Information submitted to the docket will be considered in the context of development of conceptual standards for CC-SCBAs, as well as updating equipment performance requirements to improve respirator user safety and health.
