The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) hereby advises that Mine Safety Appliances (MSA), Model TRP3A has been withdrawn from the NIJ Compliant Products List until further notice due to unresolved safety concerns. Any armors of this model should be replaced as soon as possible.
NIJ encourages law enforcement and corrections officers to continue to wear their body armor until it is replaced. Wearing untested armor is better than not wearing any armor.
