New NIOSH Rule—SRLD Final Sale Date in U.S.

Per the new NIOSH closed-circuit escape respirator (CCER) rule, breathing devices approved under the previous regulations may only be sold for 1 year after the date on which NIOSH approves the first CCER in the equivalent category. NIOSH has announced that January 4, 2017 is the last sale date for all 60 minute SCSRs approved under the previous standard.

The list of currently approved devices and their final allowable sell dates can be seen in the link below:
