    New Terminology for Body Armor

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E54.04 | Committee E54 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK42557

    1. Scope

    The scope of this document is to produce a standard terminology for body armor that is agreed upon by stakeholders and results in a common language that reduces confusion. The terminology used in discussing ballistic-resistant and stab-resistant body armor is unique to the body armor community. However, inconsistent application of terms and variations in words and descriptors exist between manufacturers, suppliers, conformity assessment bodies, purchasers, trainers, and wearers.
