This document provides a test method for evaluating the physiological impact of protective fabric ensembles and potentially protective clothing ensembles in a series of simulated activities (phases) under defined ambient conditions. This standard test method characterizes the essential properties of fabric assemblies of a representative garment or clothing ensemble for thermo-physiological assessment: — dry thermal insulation; — cooling properties during average metabolic activity and moisture management (dry and wet heat transfer); — drying behaviour. Default measurements are done on fabric samples representing the garment or protective clothing combination. Optionally and in addition to the standard test method, the same testing protocol can be applied to characterise more complex protective clothing ensembles including underwear, air layer and certain design features[1]. In addition, measurements on readymade garments are possible. This test method is intended to be used to measure and describe the behaviour of fabric assemblies of a garment or clothing ensemble in response to a simulated series of activities under controlled laboratory conditions, with the results used to optimize garment combinations and material selection. Furthermore, this document together ISO 18640-2, is intended to be used to describe the thermo-physiological impact of protective clothing but not the risk for heat stress under actual fire conditions. The results of this test can be used as elements of a risk assessment with respect to thermo-physiological load. [1] A study conducted by Empa (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, Switzerland) showed good correlation between results of standard torso tests (without underwear and air layers on fabrics) to tests on fabrics with underwear, tests on fabrics with underwear and air layers and test on readymade garments (with underwear and with or without air layers) of the same material composition. Due to the added thermal insulation values of the additional layers direct comparison of results between different measurement configurations is not possible, however.

ISO 11613:2017 specifies test methods and minimum performance requirements for protective clothing used by firefighters who are engaged in support activities of firefighting. This clothing is not intended for interior attack firefighting. These support activities of firefighting are defined (see 3.8.2) as activities such as: - water and material supply; - extinguishing fires from the outside of the structure; - prevention of exterior spreading to adjacencies, preventing enviromental damage and limiting effect of smoke; - securing traffic and environment; - first aid base activities; - preparing the fire ground for subsequent activities; - RPD replenishment tasks; - assessment zone; - BA communication; - forward command post; - evacuation; - assist planning; - assist logistics; - assist communication; - transportation. ISO 11613:2017 covers the general clothing design, the minimum performance levels of the materials used, and the methods of test for determining these performance levels. ISO 11613:2017 is not equivalent to ISO 11999-3, clothing worn by firefighters who are at risk of exposure to high levels of heat and/or flame while fighting fires occurring in structures. This document provides lower minimum level of protection. Selection of the appropriate system of clothing is dependent on carrying out an effective risk assessment which identifies the hazards to be faced, evaluates the likelihood of those hazards, and provides the means to reduce or eliminate these hazards. Details of one example of a recommended risk assessment approach and some factors for consideration are included in Annex A ISO 11613:2017 does not cover special clothing for use in other high risk situations such as specialized firefighting, or clothing for use in long term firefighting operations in high ambient temperature, for example bush, wildland, or forest firefighting where clothing according to ISO 15384 could be more appropriate. It does not cover clothing for use in high-risk fire exposures, for example reflective protective clothing according to ISO 15538 could be more appropriate. ISO 11613:2017 does not cover protection for the head, hands and feet or protection against other hazards, for example chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards. These aspects can be dealt with in other standards. NOTE Additional "fit for purpose" personal protective equipment to protect the head, hands, respiratory system and feet should be worn with clothing specified in this document and in majority of situations appropriate protection is also required to be worn. Firefighters need to be trained in the use and care of protective clothing covered by this document including an understanding of its limitations and of the other items of personal protective equipment that can be required depending on the risks encountered

This International Standard specifies test methods and minimum requirements for protective gloves to be worn during fire fighting and associated activities where there is a risk of heat and/or flame. The purpose of this International Standard is to provide minimum performance requirements for protective gloves designed to protect against injury in fire fighting operations. This International Standard covers the general glove design, the minimum performance levels of the materials used and the methods of test for determining these performance levels. With the exception of flame resistance and ergonomic requirements, this International Standard establishes three levels of performance for all other performance requirements. Type 3 gloves provide a higher level of thermal insulation and physical protection, and require liquid penetration resistance (including synthetic blood) as compared to Type 2 gloves. Type 1 gloves are intended to provide minimum requirements for gloves in any fire fighting application, such as for wildland fire fighting. Annex E provides a comparison of the performance requirements for all three glove types. This International Standard does not cover special gloves for use in other high risk situations such as specialized fire fighting. It does not cover protection for the head, torso, arms, legs and feet or protection of the hands against other hazards, e.g. chemical, biological, radiation and electrical hazards, except for limited, accidental exposure to fireground chemicals and contaminated blood or body fluids (Type 3 gloves). These aspects may be dealt with in other standards. Selection of the appropriate system of clothing, including gloves, is dependant on carrying out an effective risk assessment which identifies the hazards to be faced, evaluates the likelihood of those hazards and provides the means of reducing or eliminating these hazards. Guidelines for conducting a risk assessment and some factors for consideration are included in annex D.

ISO 16073:2011 specifies the minimum performance requirements and methods of test for personal protective equipment (PPE) covering the torso, neck, arms, hands, legs, feet, head, eyes and hearing for wildland firefighting. It covers the general design of the PPE, the minimum levels of performance for the materials employed and the methods of test used. This PPE is not intended to provide protection during fire entrapment. ISO 16073:2011 does not cover PPE for structural firefighting, for use against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazards, or for use where a reflective outer surface is required. Activities in support of wildland firefighting, such as the cutting of trees and the use of a chainsaw can require additional protection to that provided in ISO 16073:2011.

ISO 15384:2003 specifies methods of test and minimum performance requirements for protective clothing to be worn in wildland firefighting and associated activities. This clothing is not intended to provide protection during fire entrapment. ISO 15384:2003 applies to the general design of the garment, the minimum level of performance for the materials employed and the methods of test to determine these levels. ISO 15384:2003 is not applicable to clothing for use in risk situations where clothing complying with ISO 11613 or ISO 15538 is more suitable, nor does ISO 15384:2003 cover clothing to protect against chemical, biological, electrical or radiation hazards. ISO 15384:2003 is not applicable to protection of the head (it may cover the neck), eyes, hand, feet and respiratory system. These aspects may be dealt with in other International Standards.
