Abstract

This Standard is intended to provide information to the consumer on the relative capability of materials and items of clothing to provide protection against solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR). This information is provided to the consumer in the form of a labelling scheme based on an objective, reproducible test method. It is applicable to all materials and clothing items seeking to claim an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating. Sun-protection offered by synthetic shade cloth, sunscreens, sunglasses and eye protectors is the subject of other Standards.
