Authorized Equipment List
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.

About the Standardized Equipment List
- The Interagency Board provides subject matter expertise on equipment used by first responders and other emergency management professionals.
- The Interagency Board maintains the Standardized Equipment List (SEL) which has most of the equipment types listed on the Authorized Equipment List.
- The numbering scheme for individual items on the Authorized Equipment List provides direct cross-referencing with the Standardized Equipment List.
- The Standardized Equipment List has relevant standards, training requirements and operating considerations for many of the equipment items.
- A link to the Standardized Equipment List will appear on each equipment item page.
About the System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders
- The System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders (SAVER) program produces market survey reports which provide operating information on individual commercially available items.
- Most equipment items have reports.
- The program site uses the same item numbers as the Authorized Equipment List and a link to their site will appear on each equipment item page.
