EN ISO 15797 GO/RT 3279 (RIS-3279-TOM)
An Industrial Washing and finishing method for testing of
workwear. The standard specifies test methods and equipment
which can be used to determine whether materials are
suitable for workwear for industrial washing. Independent
testing institutes carry out tests for MASCOT according to
criteria established by the ETSA (European Textiles Services
Association). The GO/RT 3279 (RIS-3279-TOM) standard is based on the
European standard ISO 20471:2013 (which supersedes the
old version EN 471:2003). It requires garments to meet at

a garment. Whereas the European standard permits several
different colours of high visibility materials, the railway
