Do you mean the latest NFPA® 70E?
Or do you mean that there should be newer standards on this matter?

In the first case I have the ÔÇśNFPA┬« 70E Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace 2012 EditionÔÇÖ in 130.5 B they talk about arc flash PPE and refer to Annex D and Annex H.
In 130.7 there are a few tables with clothing split in Hazard/Risk category 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4.

2012 is the latest edition. The new one will be 2015 and should be out by Sept/Oct 2014.
