BS EN 15614:2007 specifies methods of test and minimum performance requirements for protective clothing, designed to protect the wearer's body, except the head, hands and feet, to be worn in wildland firefighting and associated activities. This clothing is not intended to provide protection during fire entrapment.  It covers the general design of the clothing, the minimum level of performance for the materials employed and the methods of test to determine these levels.

BS EN 15614:2007 is not applicable to clothing for use in situations encountered in structural firefighting (BS EN 469 and BS ISO 11613) or where a high level of infrared radiation is expected (BD EN 1486), nor does this standard cover clothing to protect against chemical, biological, electrical or radiation hazards.
