STANDARD UPDATE
On January 8th, 2010, ANSI approved the ISEA revision of the 107 Standard on High-Visibility Apparel. As with previous versions, the new standard—noted as ANSI/ISEA 107-2010—sets the basic guidelines and minimum requirements for reflective apparel. And while it is largely unchanged, there are two noteworthy differences in the 2010 version. One major change affects garments which DO NOT have reflective material encircling the arms—most often Class 2 vests.

Under the 2010 standard, these garments must now include a minimum of 23.25 square inches of reflective material on the shoulder areas. In the past this was recommended as a best practice, but now has been made mandatory. Please note that the 2010 revision does not make any changes to the amount of background or reflective material required for the performance classes; and performance Class 3 garments still require sleeves with reflective material encircling them.

Another significant change to the 2010 revision is the addition of testing and labeling requirements for garments marketed as “FR.” Under the new standard, any garment labeled FR must comply with at least one of seven commonly accepted FR standards. These FR standards, independent of ANSI 107, are published by either ASTM or NFPA.

To comply with ANSI 107-2010, FR garments must now be specially labeled in one of two ways.

· For garments tested to an ASTM FR standard, the letters “FR” followed by the specific ASTM standard must appear on the garment’s interior label.
· For garments tested to an NFPA standard, a separate label indicating certification must be attached to the garment.
