PURPOSE AND SCOPE The purpose of this standard is to establish minimum performance requirements and methods of test for the ballistic resistance of police body armor intended to pro tect the torso against gunfire. T his standard i s a revision of NIJ Standard-0 101. 02, dated March 1985, clarifying the labeling requirements, acceptance criteria, and backface signature measurement procedure. The scope of the standard is limited to ballistic resistance only; the standard does not address threats from knives and sharply poin ted instrume n t s , which ar e diffe r e nt type s of thr e at. In additio n, the standar d does n ot address armor that incorporates inserts, or variations in construction of the ballistic panel over small areas of the torso, for the purposes of increasing the basic level of protection of the armor (whether ballistic or blunt trauma) on localized areas.
