In response to the unprecedented need for PPE supplies for use by healthcare workers and other essential personnel who are confronting the COVID-19 pandemic, the US Department of Homeland Security – Federal Emergency Management Agency issued procurement guidelines for critical items, including face shields and goggles.

FEMA’s requisition specifies that products under consideration meet the requirements of ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010, American National Standard for Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection.  To assist manufacturers and other key interested parties who are seeking information on the standard, the International Safety Equipment Association (ISEA) is making ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010 available as a complimentary download in order to capture the widest distribution possible.
