    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers performance requirements and test methods for throat protectors marketed, sold, and intended for ice hockey goalkeepers.

    1.2 The intent of this specification is to reduce the risk of injury to the throat without compromising the form or appeal of the game. To do so, the protector shall be used:

    1.2.1 As intended within the rules of the game and

    1.2.2 In accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

    1.3 Ice hockey is a sport with intrinsic hazards associated with the normal conduct of the game. Participation in ice hockey implies the acceptance of some risk of injury. Use of a throat protector certified to this specification will not prevent all injuries.

    1.4 This specification has been prepared after careful consideration of the frequency and mechanisms associated with throat injuries that can potentially occur within the rules of the game of ice hockey.

    1.5 Requirements and the corresponding test methods, where appropriate, are given for the following:

    1.5.1 Construction,

    1.5.2 Puck impact resistance,

    1.5.3 Coverage,

    1.5.4 Marking and information.

    1.6 Throat protection is intended for use by goalkeepers.

    1.7 Use of the singular does not exclude the plural (and vice versa) when the sense allows.

    1.8 Although the intended primary application of this specification is stated in this scope, note that it remains the responsibility of the users of this specification to judge its suitability for their particular purpose.

    1.9 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.10 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
