standards must be applied to the evaluation and purchase of all armour products.
The NIJ [National Institute of Justice - USA] has for many years
defined acceptable standards for the test and evaluation of all
levels of armour. These standards can be easily modified in accordance
with each customer's operational requirements. The importance of
adopting a standard for the evaluation and acceptance of armour,
both pre and post contract cannot be emphasised enough, by doing
so both the supplier and the buyer can repeat the evaluation test
accurately and measure the performance of all products against
a known and agreed standard.
