Webinar Recording – Respiratory Protective Devices ISO Standards

Presenter(s): Presenters: Dr Gabriele Troescher & Richard Donarski

Recorded 25th Aug 2023

This webinar will provide an update on the ISO Respiratory Protective Devices Standards, bringing this global Standard back to home.

Standards are used to demonstrate conformance to local regulations / laws. There is a new set of globally harmonised standards for respiratory protective devices (RPD) that changes the focus from performance by design to performance required by the wearer. The work on these standards started more than 20 years ago; with several RPD standards already published.

Australia/New Zealand joint standards (AS/NZS) have been reviewing and adopting these standards through the work done under the SF-010 Occupational Respiratory Protection Committee.

This webinar will be presented by the Chair of the ISO respiratory protective devices committee (ISO/TC 64/SC 15) providing a high level overview of these new suite of ISO standards. The Chair of AS/NZS occupational respiratory protection committee (SF-010) and a number committee members will also discuss information on the local New Zealand and Australian adoption plans of these standards.
