The joint standard for sunglasses and fashion spectacles has been revised.

AS/NZS 1067:2003 Eye and face protection – Sunglasses and fashion spectacles is now in two parts:

  • AS/NZS 1067.1:2016 Eye and face protection – Sunglasses and fashion spectacles Part 1: Requirements
  • AS/NZS 1067.2:2016 Eye and face protection – Sunglasses and fashion spectacles Part 2: Test methods

Part 1 specifies minimum requirements for sunglasses, fashion spectacles, and replacement filters that are nominally afocal providing protection against solar radiation for general use including road use and driving.

Part 2 specifies test methods for sunglasses and fashion spectacles (including replacement filters) in accordance with Part 1. It is identical with, and has been reproduced from, ISO 12311:2013, Personal protective equipment – Test methods for sunglasses and related eyewear.
