- If buying used body armour from distributors or private sellers how can you be sure it still works? Has it been tested to ensure compliance to the original protection levels? What expertise do they have? Body armour or anti stab vests do loose their protection capabilities if mistreated during life.
- If buying from a company do a quick search online using a free service such as Duedil to assess the financial performance of the company. Are they as strong as their promotional material suggests?
- Lots of sellers claim to be selling Home Office certified vests. HOSDB standards are used by majority of UK government agencies and there is a database on the internet. Check the HOSDB Body Armour Database to see if the sellers are listed. You will find the majority are not.
