    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers new and reconditioned football helmets intended for use in competitive play and practice with particular reference to shock attenuation requirements.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F08 on Sports Equipment, Playing Surfaces, and Facilities, this specification was withdrawn in September 2017. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its lack of use by industry.
