Default Climbing Helmets and CE Specifications

here goes.

I do a fair bit of climbing, abseiling, caving and canyoning. Recently i bought a helmet for doing this stuff, and it came CE spec compliant.

Now thats all good and well, and i like my helmet lots, but i was in a discussion with another climbing friend who uses another sort of helmet for climbing. A lighter weight polycarbonate design one.

Theoretically the shock and impact restistance for our helmets should be the same or little difference, as both are CE speced.

Howver they are specced to different standards, one being for ice climbing and the other for lead.

Does anyone have a copy of the standards or know where i can get a copy from, because i cant find them whatsoever and i would desperately like a copy.
