Respiratory protective equipment -
Practical performance evaluation methods
1 Scope
This standard specifies the test requirements and test methods for evaluation of practical
performance of respiratory protective equipment.
This standard is applicable to all kinds of respiratory protective equipment that are used
for preventing respiratory hazards.
This standard is not applicable to diving breathing apparatus.

4 Test requirements
4.1 General test requirements
The following conditions shall be determined before performing practical performance test
to any respirator with this standard:
a) the number of samples, see Annex A;
b) prepare the respirator-under-test to operative conditions according to the operating
c) any prior testing or conditioning;
d) test temperature and humidity;
e) the selection and number of test-examinees, see Annex A;
f) test items and sequence;
g) allowable deviations from the test items specified in Table 1;
h) specific requirements for all items to be observed in the test;
i) pass/fail criteria.
4.2 Test-examinees
4.2.1 Selection of test-examinees
Test-examinees who have experience in wearing the same type of respirator-under-test
shall be selected. Prior to the tests, the medical history of the test-examinees shall be
checked to ensure that their physical conditions are satisfactory for the tasks involved; it
can withstand the work intensity and meet relevant requirements.
The test-examinees shall be the target population as specified in the operating
instructions. If certain types of respirators (such as escape respirators) are specified to be
applicable to general public, the test-examinees shall be selected from the general public.
4.2.2 Information of test-examinees
The name, age, gender, height, weight and other information of the test-examinees shall
be recorded.
The morphological facial length and facial width of each test-examinee shall be measured
according to the definition or method specified in GB/T 5703-1999 and recorded in the test
4.3 Test conditions
The test temperature and relative humidity shall be 16°C~32°C and 30%~80%
respectively, and shall be recorded in the test report.
Unless otherwise specified, parameters other than temperature specified in this standard
shall be subject to a tolerance of ±5%, and any temperature limits specified shall be
subject to an accuracy of ±1°C.
