: Brown Technical Book Store
BS 7971-5:2016 specifies requirements and test methods for footwear, which is to be used predominantly but not exclusively by police and prison officers in specialist operational situations and in training and by others who might be exposed to attack and assault in the course of their duties. NOTE 1 Civilian groups working alongside police or prison services in specialist operational situations might find by risk assessment that this British Standard offers additional protection for such activities and threats not within the scope of other standards. NOTE 2 This British Standard does not cover external, over-the-boot metatarsal protection which is intended to be considered in the next revision of BS 7971-4.
