This document provides a framework to assist in developing, structuring, and managing a personal protective equipment (PPE) conformity assessment (CA) for American workplaces. It discusses how a comprehensive and tailor-made CA program is the most effective way to manage risks of a non-conforming PPE and instill confidence in PPE users. It is the product of collaboration among the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) representatives and a broad cross-section of members of the PPE community.
