Ski goggles are exempt from the requirements of this Standard. This Standard does not apply to tinted glasses identified as night-driving glasses. The wearing of sunglasses or tinted glasses of any kind for night driving is strongly discouraged. This Standard makes no provision for statistical sampling or quality control procedures for assessing the quality of sunglasses and fashion spectacles. Where compliance with this Standard is to be assessed on the basis of statistical sampling and inspection, the sampling plan should be in accordance with AS 1199 and should take into account the guidance given in AS 1399.NOTES:Sunglasses and fashion spectacles covered by this Standard are not necessarily suitable for eye protection in industrial environments. Eye protectors suitable for industrial application are specified in AS 1337 in addition to the requirements of this Standard. Requirements for filters for eye protectors designed for protection against sources of optical radiation other than natural sunlight are specified in AS 1338.
