Manufacturers interested in submitting armor for compliance testing should first review NIJ Standard-0115.00 to ensure familiarity with testing, labeling and workmanship requirements. Second, the manufacturer should contact an NIJ-approved laboratory to schedule a compliance test. Once the laboratory has been contacted and a test date has been scheduled, the manufacturer should submit three identical armor samples of the same model to the Compliance Testing Program (CTP) at NLECTC-National. Along with the armor samples, the manufacturer should enclose documentation that contains a request for the test, the laboratory selected, the tentative date the test has been scheduled, the model designation of the armor model(s) submitted and the protection class (s) and level(s) the samples are to be tested against. Once the CTP has the armor, staff will inspect the samples to ensure that they meet the labeling/workmanship requirements and that the manufacturer has submitted all the essential documentation. After that, the CTP will forward the test samples to the laboratory for compliance testing.
