Recent Notices Affect More Than 40 NIOSH-Approved Respirators

NIOSH has honored the requests of four companies to voluntarily rescind respirator approvals. The rescissions affect 22 approvals issued to Honeywell International Inc., 15 approvals issued to 3M Scott Fire & Safety, five approvals issued to Champak Enterprise Co., and four approvals issued to Scott Health & Safety. Respirators bearing the approval numbers listed in the agency’s notices are no longer NIOSH approved and may no longer be used, manufactured, assembled, sold, or distributed. The agency directs individuals to contact the companies regarding inquiries about the decisions to voluntarily rescind these approvals.

These and other recent respirator-related notices can be found on the NPPTL website.
