ISEA Seeks Participants for Review of Revised Hi-Vis Public Safety Vests Standard

The standard specifies the minimum amount of background and retro-reflective material and the performance characteristics for such materials used in construction of public safety vests.

The voluntary consensus standard, ANSI/ISEA 207-2006 American National Standard for High-Visibility Public Safety Vests, is scheduled to be revised by the end of the year. The standard specifies the minimum amount of background and retro-reflective material and the performance characteristics for such materials used in construction of public safety vests. ANSI/ISEA 207 also includes design and labeling criteria for the finished item.

As part of the development process, standards prepared by ISEA product groups become American National Standards through a consensus process that involves reviewers outside the association. These reviewers submit comments and vote on the approval of the standard. They serve as the final authority if determining whether a standard is submitted to ANSI for acceptance as an American National Standard.

ISEA maintains a list of participants, balanced by interest category, for each standard. A reviewer may fall into one of four categories:

  • Producer: A manufacturer of the product covered by the standard or components thereof.
  • User: An organization that uses, specifies, or purchases the product covered by the standard.
  • Government: An agency or department that has regulatory authority or other interest in the product. (Government agencies that use the product fall under the User category.)
  • General Interest: An organization that has a special interest in the standard due to safety, technical, or other requirements or an individual expert with knowledge in the area(s) covered by the standard, but who neither produces nor uses the products.

Consensus review of the proposed update is expected to begin in June. Go to www.safetyequipment.org for more information.
