Letter to All Respirator Manufacturers

NOTE: This page is archived for historical purposes and is no longer being maintained or updated.

Issue Date: March 10, 2005

From: Heinz W. Ahlers, Acting Chief, Respirator Branch, National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory

Subject: April 1, 2005 revised fees for CBRN respirator approvals and Federal Tax ID Number - Employee Identification Number (EIN) listing on all payment checks

New fees for CBRN approvals are being implemented effective April 1, 2005 and will be applied to all applications received on or after that date. All applications received before April 1, 2005 will be billed at the 2004 rates.

The fee schedules include two new items for conditioning of certain CBRN respirators.

Conditioning : NPPTL now has the capability to condition a limited number of samples at its Pittsburgh site and at a lower cost than RDECOM. However, due to limited capacity, those choosing conditioning at NPPTL may have to wait a significant amount of time for chamber space availability, depending on projects already in the NPPTL conditioning queue. NPPTL recommends that manufacturers call immediately prior to sending an application to determine wait time. NIOSH will ask manufacturers to indicate if they want samples conditioned at NIOSH or at RDECOM. RDECOM has capacity sufficient that there should be little or no wait for their chamber access.

Payment for services - CBRN: Due to the time required for processing CBRN applications, NPPTL will no longer require checks to accompany CBRN application submissions. Manufacturers will be invoiced at the completion of testing and review. Payment must be received before NIOSH will issue the approval. Each check must contain the Federal Tax Identification Number - EIN. This requirement applies to CBRN and non-CBRN checks. NIOSH cannot accept checks without the EIN.

Payment for services - Non-CBRN: Checks must accompany non-CBRN applications. Each check must contain the Federal Tax Identification Number - EIN. This requirement applies to CBRN and non-CBRN checks. NIOSH cannot accept checks without the EIN.

The revised fees for CBRN respirator approvals are listed below by respirator type.

NPPTL will re-evaluate these fees and adjust them annually. NPPTL will attempt to notify manufacturers in advance of changes. In the future, NPPTL will begin to review fees late in the calendar year with the goal of publishing them by the end of the calendar year.
