This European Standard provides guidance on the best practice for establishing and implementing a suitable respiratory protective device programme. It is published to provide a Europe-wide baseline for the selection, use, care and maintenance of respiratory protective devices. It provides guidelines for preparing national guidance in this area. The guidance contained in this European Standard is not intended to be exhaustive, but highlights important aspects to which attention should be given. The recommendations in this European Standard will help to comply with national legislation on this subject where it exists, or with European legislation.
Respiratory protective devices used exclusively in diving and at increased or reduced atmospheric pressures are not covered by this guidance.
