Law Enforcement CBRN Protective Ensemble (including garment elements, hand protection elements, foot protection elements, and respiratory protection) certified as compliant with NIJ Standard-0116.00. The requirements for Law Enforcement Response Level 4 (LERL-4) apply to ensemble models and ensemble elements intended to provide protection to law enforcement personnel performing perimeter operations at incidents involving CBRN hazards and conditions in which contaminant concentrations are known to be below IDLH levels, permitting the use of a NIOSH-compliant CBRN air purifying respirator (APR) or CBRN powered APR (PAPR), and where mission tasks require less stringent ensemble durability. These ensemble models are required to be tested against the same two CWAs and five TICs as LERL-2 and LERL-3 ensemble models. NIJ Standard-0116.00 LERL-4 ensemble certifications specify all constituent elements (garment elements, hand protection elements, foot protection elements, and CBRN APR or PAPR) by manufacturer and model number. These ensembles must be worn as complete ensembles with all elements, and using any element other than those specified within the ensemble certification invalidates the certification.
