NIJ Standard-0115.00

test_3The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is updating NIJ Standard-0115.00 (Stab Resistance of Personal Body Armor) with a draft being released later in the year for public comment.  Changes to the standard include:

  • armour testing requirements for improvised stab/slash threats faced by corrections officers in controlled areas,
  • testing requirements for officers requiring protection from commercial stab/slash threats in uncontrolled areas,
  • testing specific to female body armour models, and;
  • conditioning (tumbling the armors for many days) prior to testing.

For more information see (Stab Armor Fact Sheet).  Please contact Biokinetics for your testing needs.
