ANSI/ISEA 102-1990 (R2009)

American National Standard for Gas Detector Tubes - Short Term Types for Toxic Gases and Vapors in Working Environments

The purpose of this standard is to provide a means of continual testing of gas detector tube units and components for accurate performance in working environments, by determining the concentration of toxic gases and vapor.  It was drafted by the ISEA Instruments Group to establish a voluntary standard for gas detector tube units, based on criteria that had been established by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in its now-discontinued certification program. The ANSI/ISEA 102 standard was first published in 1990 and was most recently reaffirmed in 2009.
