HOSDB Body Armour Standards for UK Police (2007), Part 1: General Requirements 39-07-A

This document is the product of further reviews and has been introduced to offer protection against the threat from the G36C and other short barrelled 5.56 calibre carbines increasingly used by AFOs. A further rifle protection level – RF2- is also included in this standard together with increased compliance testing to increase the statistical confidence and robustness of body armour at all threat levels.
