This Regulation applies to personal protective equipment (PPE) and contains the basic requirements for their development and production in order to ensure the safety of users in the markets of the European Union. The new Regulation was adopted on March 9, 2016 and replaced the previous document – Directive 89/686/EEC.
The new Regulation is distinguished by the following mandatory conditions:
- display of the requirements for labeling, component parts, risk assessment for the user;
- display of certificates on all web resources;
- storage of certificates during 10 years;
- availability of documentation in all official languages of the country, etc.Following the rules will allow the PPE industry to better ensure the safety of workers in a growing international network of manufacturers and distributors.
