The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) hereby advises that American Body Armor models BA-2000SHP02F, BA-2000S-SX01F have been suspended from the NIJ Ballistic-resistant Body Armor Compliant Products List (CPL). Suspension has occurred because of the noncompliance of production samples with our Follow-up Inspection and Testing Program. Following the completion of an ongoing evaluation, the compliance status of this model will be updated on the CPL.
Law enforcement and corrections officers currently wearing this model of armor are encouraged to continue wearing it or other NIJ-compliant body armor and to periodically check the CPL for resolution or removal of this notice.
