Summary: CBRN Protective Ensemble Standard for Law Enforcement (NIJ Standard-0116.00) is a voluntary performance standard for protective ensembles for use by law enforcement. CBRN ensembles consist of four elements:

  • Garment covering the wearer’s upper and lower torso, arms, legs and head.
  • Hand protection elements covering the wearer's wrists and hands.
  • Foot protection covering the wearer’s feet, ankles and lower legs.
  • Respiratory protection.

This NIJ standard defines both performance requirements and the methods used to test performance.
