MSA CBRN Approved Millennium Gas Mask
The First CBRN Certified Respirator!
" When the Line Must Be Crossed..." First Responders are the ones who must cross the line into danger. Their respiratory equipment must be ready and reliable to protect them against potentially lethal airborne threats.
MSA's NEW Millennium CBRN Gas Mask was the FIRST NIOSH-certified
CBRN full-facepiece air-purifying respirator (APR). When the CBRN approval was first introduced, there were only 2 masks approved: The MSA Millennium and the 3M Fr-M40b. The Millennium gas mask provides first responders with effective respiratory protection against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) agents that might be used in a terrorist attack.
(NIOSH Approval number TC-14G-0270)
MSA has manufactured gas masks for almost 90 years and understands how critical
CBRN protection is to first responders. MSA is proud to be the first to have
met the challenge of meeting the new NIOSH CBRN standards and to provide the
equipment to protect first responders in the battle against terrorism. Read more

a century of history and success behind it, MSA stands ready to protect Americans – this
time against all potential airborne contaminants that could be unleashed by
terrorists across our homeland. The Millennium CBRN gas mask is the most up-to-date
example of MSA's commitment and unwavering dedication to protect today's and
tomorrow's First Responder.
MSA Millennium CBRN gas mask meets or exceeds all performance requirements
of the new NIOSH CBRN Standard (read below) by effectively removing harmful
gases, vapors and particulates so that the user can confidently breathe
The Millennium CBRN canister contains chemical sorbents and a P100 filter
to attract, retain, and neutralize contaminants. The Millennium CBRN
design is based on a highly successful military gas mask. The wearer
enjoys a wide field of view and great flexibility,making it possible
to safely perform any tasks required, including firing weapons if needed.
The wearer can communicate easily while wearing the Millennium CBRN Gas
Mask, too. The mask is lightweight and provides a tight seal on the face.
A nose cup is also incorporated for reduced fogging of the
facepiece. The material is impermeable to chemical agents such as mustard (HD),
providing maximum assurance to the wearer. A butyl coated nylon hood also is
available for total head protection. Regarding interoperability, the Millennium
CBRN Gas Mask is designed as a system and while the thread and gasket are designed
to meet the requirements of the standard, only the manufacturer’s assemblies
are tested and certified. The mask also permits hydration once the wearer has
moved to an uncontaminated area.The
CBRN version is the same as a regular Millennium
mask (pictured) but with
a specific CBRN certified gas filter cartridge.

about the new CBRN Approval standard and the MSA Millennium Gas
Government and industry representatives had been
working on defining standards for protective equipment
to safeguard individuals against airborne terrorist
attacks prior to the events of September 11, 2001.
Following that day’s attacks, efforts were accelerated
with establishment of the National Personal Protective
Technology Laboratory in Pittsburgh, which took on the
role of certifying new standards for CBRN respiratory
protection and clothing.
The new National Institute for Occupational Safety and
Health (NIOSH) CBRN standard for full-facepiece gas
masks was issued on March 7, 2003. In conjunction with
U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center it tests
and approves devices as “CBRN compliant” and
establishes very stringent testing and certification protocols
• Chemical, biological, radiological and
• Mask penetration and permeation.
• Carry and transportation.
• Use performance.
• Quality assurance.
The new NIOSH standards
• Performance requirements for
protection against high concentrations of agents
(the shortest period being 15 minutes).
• Parameters on environments and applications where
masks are to be used, including warm zone environments
(locations away from the highest concentrations) and
crisis provisions (should terrorists deploy a secondary
device as responders arrive at the scene).
• Representative degrees of agents,working on the idea
that preparing for the worst potential in a
family of chemicals would enable protection
against the entire family of agents.
• Rules for testing service life, particulate
efficiency, permeation and penetration, fit
factors, field of view and interoperability.
• MSA has been an active participant and
contributor to the process of determining these
new standards and is considered to be a
Chemical, Biological, Radiological
and Nuclear hazards which could be used in a terrorist
Chemical agents include cyanide,
mustard gas, ricin, sarin and VX, each
of which represents multiple sources
of physical distress, some leading
even to death. Certain chemical
agents attack the central nervous
system, disabling the body’s ability
to control its functions and permitting
muscles and organs to work
themselves to death. Others attack
the skin and mucous membranes on
contact, causing severe blistering.
Radiological and Nuclear threats include “dirty bombs,” or
dispersal devices combining conventional explosives like dynamite
radioactive materials in the form of powder or pellets. Classic
hazards are those associated with the aftermath of detonation
of a nuclear
device. Radiation cannot be seen, smelled, felt or tasted by
Biological agents include anthrax,
botulism and smallpox. These agents
are bacteria or viruses endangering
the life and health of organisms,
specifically human beings. Some
multiply within the body to release
toxins into the blood, others paralyze
muscles, still others are severe and
contagious viral infections.
