Supplied Air Respirators(SAR)

September 2009
NIOSH Docket Number 083-B

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 Title 42 Code of Federal Regulations Part 84 (42 CFR Part 84) to promote improved performance and reliability of supplied-air respirators (SAR).

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