PPE Certification in India

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

PPE refers to any type of clothing or equipment worn by a worker to protect themselves from hazards while on the job. This can include items such as hard hats, safety glasses, respirators, and protective clothing. PPE is an important part of any safety program and can help reduce the risk of injuries or fatalities in the workplace. PPE Certification ensures that the PPE products are produced in accordance with harmonized standards and satisfy the PPE regulation. The harmonized standard also has specifications for manufacturing the products.

PPE products should comply with regulation 2016/425 (the latest version) to enter into the European business markets. PPE ensures the safety of the wearer. Regardless of their line of work, firemen, laboratory technicians, medical practitioners, and skilled craftsmen all require protective gear that is both durable and high-quality to safeguard themselves against life-threatening dangers and events. As a result, it’s critical that PPE meet the necessary safety standards.

Testing to PPE

PPE test certificate by IAS demonstrates that your PPE product complies with specific requirements of the PPE regulations. To verify the efficacy of your product, we perform the appropriate tests in accordance with accepted test criteria. Moreover, the PPE products which are made under 2016/425 must comply with the Essential Health and Safety Requirements (ESHR) in the PPE regulation.

PPE Certification for Different Category of Products

Based on the risk levels, all PPE items are divided into three categories as per the regulation 2016/425 of the EU:

  1. Category I includes PPE products that help to protect wearers from minimal risks. That’s to say, the risks occur due to contact with water or cleaning materials, and sunlight. The products in this category are gardening gloves, sunglasses, etc.
  2. The products that do not fall under the category of I and III are considered Category II. It consists of PPE products such as safety spectacles and goggles, industrial helmets, bump caps, high visibility clothing, etc.
  3. Category III includes products such as respiratory equipment, fall arrest equipment, life vests, chemical protective clothing, etc.

To verify the quality and durability of the PPE, manufacturers must pass compliance tests against the EU’s 2016/425 Regulation. To obtain the PPE designation, producers must complete a technical file that details testing reports and findings for your PPE.
