General Instructions for compliant reflective clothing

To ensure that your reflective clothing is effective it needs to conform to EN ISO 20471:2013.

What is EN ISO 20471?

EN ISO 20471 is a revised version of the previous EN 471 high visibility PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) standard. According to Directive 89/686/EEC, the high visibility protective clothing is required by law to protect people who work on or near a roadside, whilst they go about their day to day business.

The standards are set by identifying the risks to people. This is the minimum standard for high visibility clothing, which is capable of visually signalling the user’s presence and which specifies test methods and performance requirements for PPE  (Personal Protective Equipment) which includes reflective clothing, and worn in high-risk situations.

What is the main criteria for the standard?

Colour and Retroreflection as well as for the minimum areas and for the placement of the materials in protective clothing.
Three classes of garment are defined based on three different minimum areas of retroreflective, fluorescent and/or
combined performance materials. Each of these classes will provide a different level of conspicuity.

Material Class 3 Garments Class 2 Garments Class 1 Garments
Background material 0,80 0,50 0,14
Retroreflective material 0,20 0,13 0,10
Combined performance material n.a. n.a. n.a.
NOTE: The clothing class is determined by the lowest area of visible material.

Class 3 being the class that provides the highest degree of visibility against most backgrounds found in urban and rural
situations in daylight and in night time. There are within the standard, certain requirements for in-use Test Requirements.

The standard takes into consideration the materials require brightness after:
