American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Headwear
The standard provides a uniform, authoritative guide for the design, performance specifications, and use of high-visibility and reflective apparel including vests, jackets, bib/jumpsuit coveralls, trousers and harnesses. Garments that meet this standard can be worn 24 hours a day to provide users with a high level of conspicuity through the use of combined fluorescent and retroreflective materials. The standard establishes three Performance Classes for high-visibility safety apparel based on the wearer’s activities, and determined by the total area of background and reflective materials used.
To comply with ANSI/ISEA 107-2010, a garment’s background material, and retroreflective or combined-performance material, must be tested and certified by an independent, accredited third-party laboratory. The manufacturer of the finished item then verifies that the garment or headwear meets all the requirements of the standard, and provides a certificate of compliance for for each model. Forms for recording and reporting test results are included in the standard, as is a format for the compliance certificate.
