Quality Conformity Standards
The Personal Protective Equipment Directives (89/686/CEE) and (93/68/CEE) have been enacted by the European Community to ensure harmonisation of regulations regarding testing of all PPE sold within the community. All gloves of intermediate and complex design must now be tested independently to ascertain their performance and ensure their safety. They must, if they meet these standards, carry a CE Mark on the gloves or packaging.
We vet our manufacturers to ensure they have robust quality management systems in place with evidence of compliance to either ISO 9001 or BS EN 13485 or an equivalent certification.
