For several years, ECBC has tested and evaluated the performance
of new equipment designed to protect against, detect or decontaminate
chemical and biological agents for government agencies and private companies.
Since Sept. 11, 2001, ECBC has been called upon to assist in the development
of the very standards by which this equipment is appraised.
A world leader in providing reliable science, technology and engineering
solutions to chemical and biological related problems, ECBC is heading
a national effort to standardize and validate various chemical and biological
defense equipment earmarked for military deployment or civilian use. For more information on these and other services please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently, ECBC signed an interagency agreement with the National Institute
for Occupational Safety and Health and the National Institute for Standards
and Technology for the development of chemical biological respiratory
protection guidelines. In support of this work, ECBC is recommending
standards commercial producers of this equipment should meet and crafting
test procedures to validate standard certification.
