GB 8965.1-2009 protective clothing flame retardant protection Part 1: flame retardant clothing-National Standard of China
- May 22, 2018 -

This standard is the flame retardant clothing implementation standard issued by the State Administration of Quality Supervision and the National Standardization Committee on April 1, 2009 and implemented on December 1, 2009, replacing the original standard GB8965-1998. The standard specifies the technical requirements, inspection (testing) methods, inspection rules, markings, packaging and storage of flame-retardant garments. It is applicable to users who engage in open flames, emit sparks, operate in the vicinity of molten metal, and have flammable substances and have a risk of fire. The flame-retardant clothing worn by the place is not suitable for fire-retardant protective clothing worn during firefighting and rescue.

The standard flame-retardant protective clothing is divided into A, B, C three levels:

Class A is suitable for wearers who are engaged in flame retardant clothing with open flames, sparks, radiant heat and convection heat near the molten metal.

Class B applies to the wearer's use of flame-retardant clothing worn in open flames, sparks, flammable substances, and fire hazards.

Class C applies to those who take temporary, not long-term use, to engage in flame-retardant clothing worn in areas with flammable substances and fire hazards.
