Revocation also means that respirators bearing any of the NIOSH approval numbers listed above may no longer be used, manufactured, assembled, sold, or distributed. As of October 27, 2022, respirators bearing the NIOSH approval numbers listed above are no longer considered approved and may not be used in fulfillment of any standard or statute requiring the use of a NIOSH Approved® respirator.

Honeywell Int’l. Inc. failed to control the design, labeling, and quality management for the approvals listed above as required by 42 C.F.R. Part 84.  Thus, NIOSH has revoked these approvals in accordance with its authority as set forth in 42 C.F.R. § 84.34, which states, “The Institute reserves the right to revoke, for cause, any certificate of approval issued pursuant to the provisions of this part. Such causes include, but are not limited to, misuse of approval labels and markings, misleading advertising, and failure to maintain or cause to be maintained the quality control requirements of the certificate of approval.”
