Information submitted to the docket will be considered in the context of developing a Final Rule to update the quality requirements for respirator manufacturers and ultimately the quality of respirators used by the American workforces. Information on the development of concepts that led to this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking can be found in NIOSH Docket number 001.
