Respiratory Protection

ICS Laboratories is a leading source for accredited third-party conformity assessment of respiratory protective equipment. ICS tests respirators, filters, cartridges and their many associated devices and accessories to a wide range of US (NIOSH), European (EN) and Australian (AS/NZS) standards. ICS Laboratories is the only third-party laboratory in North America that is fully accredited to perform testing according to NIOSH standard test procedures, as developed by the CDC. Further, we are the only independent conformity assessment body that is recognized by NIOSH to perform pre-submittal certification testing on respiratory protective equipment intended to be marketed in the US for occupational use. Our capabilities with regard to respiratory testing are extensive and range from half-mask filtering facepieces to supplied-air (SCBA) respirators and specialized equipment designed to protect against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear respiratory hazards (CBRN).
