NIJ  0108.01

US National Institute of Justice Standard-Test and Certification for Ballistic Resistant Materials

This US specification is applicable to all ballistic resistant materials (armour) intended to provide protection against gunfire, with the exception of police body armour and ballistic helmets, which are the topic of individual NIJ performance standards.  The calibre of weapons are similar to that of the European EN1063 and US UL752 standard but have different categories which can be seen in the document to the right.
