Proposed changes have been submitted for both the ANSI/ISEA 105 Hand Protection Selection Criteria and the EN 388 European regulatory standard for protective gloves, and, if adopted, these changes are scheduled to take effect in early 2016. It is important for everyone involved in the design, development, and specification of cut-resistant apparel and PPE to understand how these changes will affect the choices they will need to make for their employers, employees and themselves.
