EN 469: Protective Clothing for Firefighters
This norm describes its test methods and requirements towards PPE in the aspect of fire control within a given area. It lists general factors for consideration in terms of design as well as test methods for flame spread, heat transfer, residual strength and heat resistance property. Additional requirements include: tensile strength, tear strength, surface wetting, dimensional change, resistance to penetration by liquid chemicals, resistance to water penetration and water vapour.
 

Only when fulfill all the requirements below can claim to be in compliance with EN469 . When Article 10 has been completed, and Article 11 has been carried out or agreed with a Notified Body, the mark can then be affixed to the approved equipment.
