Who and why were armoring standards developed?
Numerous international organizations have developed armoring standards – – defeat levels and testing procedures. In the USA for instance, the standards were developed by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), a procurement arm of the US government. In Europe the European Union developed their standard, called CEN, which is the B-Level standard. Other countries too have developed their own standards. International Armoring Corporation® generally adheres to the European Union’s standard because it is more specific to the requirements of armored passenger vehicles.
