Recruits had to be between the ages of 17 and 23, at least 1. 74 metres (5 ft 9 in) tall (1. 78 metres (5 ft 10 in) for the Leibstandarte). Concentration camp guards had to make a one-year commitment, be between the ages of 16 and 23, and at least 1. 72 metres (5 ft 8 in) tall. All recruits were required to have perfect teeth and eyesight and provide a medical certificate. By 1938 the height restrictions were relaxed, up to six dental fillings were permitted, and eyeglasses for astigmatism and mild vision correction were allowed. Once the war commenced, the physical requirements were no longer strictly enforced, and essentially any recruit who could pass a basic medical exam was considered for Waffen-SS service. Recruiting of ethnic Germans from other countries began in April 1940, and units consisting of non-Germanic recruits were formed beginning in 1942. Non-Germanic units were not considered to be part of the SS, which still maintained its strict racial criteria, but rather were considered to be foreign nationals serving under the command of the SS.
