EU Market Access Requirements for PPE/DPI
Do you have personal protective equipment ready for deployment in the European market? Every company or entity is required to obtain CE-Mark before trading personal protective equipment in the European market. Obtaining the CE-Mark means that you, as the responsible entity, comply with the legal requirements of the European market, especially the European Directive 89/686/EEA. Furthermore, your product must also conform to the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/425. These regulations are in place to ensure that the personal protective equipment is safe to use.
Which PPE Products are required to comply with the regulations:
The requirements of the directive apply to every personal protective equipment that a user may wear or hold for protective purposes. It is of no concern whether the product protects against safety or health risks or whether it provides protection against multiple risk types. The regulations are also applicable to systems that consist of a PPE and another external product. Hence, it is clear that all types of PPE products require compliance with the regulations.
