Certified Equipment List

Instructions and Tips

Following are some instructions and tips for submitting a query to the Certified Equipment List:

  • You may select the maximum number of records you would like returned on a page.  The default is 50.
  • You may select multiple criteria in the following drop-down lists by holding down the Ctrl key:  Schedule, Product Line, Protections, Manufacturer, Facepiece Type, and SAR Type.  In all other drop-down lists, only one selection criteria is accepted.
  • If you would like to limit your search to combination respirators, you may do so by selecting the checkbox for one or more of the combination types (Combination Air-Purifying/Atmosphere-Supplying, Combination Gas/Vapor Removing and Particulate Filtering, Combination SCBA/SAR).
  • If you want to remove selections from a drop-down list, select the blank line at the top of the list.
  • You may limit the query by entering a range of approval dates in the format "mm/dd/yyyy".  The earliest date in the Certified Equipment List is 05/24/1974.
  • By default, only active respirators are returned in the results list.  If you want to include obsolete respirators in the results list, check the box "Include Obsolete Respirators?".
  • To view details on a respirator, click the number in the "Approval#" column on the results list.
  • To view manufacturer details, click the name in the "Manufacturer" column of the results list.
