Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) CE Marking

Personal protective equipment enables user protection against hazards at work, at home or at leisure. There are mechanisms in the professional setting to achieve what the Union sees as an essential right that of health and safety at work.

European Union policy towards the personal protective equipment shall establish and remove impediments to trade in these products inside the internal market, as the fundamental health and safety requirements that are to be met by producers. The CE certification on the personal protective equipment shows that it meets those harmonised regulations and is sold in the European Economic Area and Turkey.

The EU Regulation 2016/425, required all the PPE placed on European Market must comply with this regulation. This divides PPE in three categories based on degree of risk involved i.e. more stringent certification process for high risk PPE.

  • Category I PPE – supported by a manufacture’s self-declaration. Category I PPE Provide protection against the lowest level of risk.
  • Category II PPE provides protection against normal risks. For this, the manufacturer submits sample of PPE for testing known as module B certificate
  • Category III PPE provides protection against the highest level of risk. This PPE is intended to provide protection against dangers which are serious and cause irreversible damage to health. For these products a module B certificate and a module C2 or module D certificate is required.
