How Do I submit products for testing?

Manufacturers (i.e., applicants) must register through the National Institute of Justice Compliance Testing Program’s (NIJ CTP’s) Testing Information Management System if they want to submit ballistic-resistant body armor models to the NIJ CTP for testing in accordance with NIJ standards for the purposes of (1) obtaining an NIJ Notice of Compliance and (2) having the product listed on the NIJ Compliant Product List. More information about the process for submitting ballistic-resistant body armor for testing can be found here.
