Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a type of shield that people use to protect themselves from dangers and other infectious materials (PPE). PPE Certification assures that items are manufactured in accordance with internationally recognized standards and comply with PPE rules. The harmonized standard also outlines the production criteria for the items.
To access the commercial markets of European countries, personal protective equipment (PPE) must comply with European Union (EU) regulation 2016/425 (latest version). Personal protective equipment, regardless of job, is required to protect oneself from life-threatening threats and events. As a result, it is critical that the PPE meets all applicable safety criteria.
PPE Certification for Products
According to EU regulation 2016/425, all PPE goods are divided into three categories based on risk levels:
Category I: This covers personal protective equipment (PPE) that helps protect wearers from minor threats. These dangers arise from interaction with water, cleaning agents, sunshine, and other factors. Gardening gloves, eyewear, and other items fall within this category.
Category II: This category includes all items that do not fit under categories I or III. This comprises personal protective equipment (PPE) including safety glasses and goggles, industrial helmets, bump caps, high-visibility apparel, etc.
Category III: Products in this category include breathing apparatus, fall arrest equipment, life jackets, chemical protective clothing, etc.
Manufacturers of personal protective equipment (PPE) should submit their goods for conformity testing in accordance with the EU regulation 2016/425 in order to ensure their quality and durability. Manufacturers should create a technical file that contains information about your PPE’s testing reports and findings in order to receive PPE certification.
Who Should Apply for PPE Certification?
Companies, institutions, and organizations that supply PPE to factories or job sites must apply for certification. These sites include but are not limited to construction, mining, forestry, utilities, and other industries.
