Regulation (EU) 2016/425 – New PPE Regulation
In April 2016, when the European Parliament adopted the Regulation proposed by the EU Commission on Personal Protective Equipment, Ansell entered a new chapter in the maturation of the EU PPE industry. PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 is a comprehensive piece of legislation that establishes more rigorous standards and requires a broader scope for industry stakeholders to comply. It also provides a charter for formalizing the testing requirements for Notified Bodies and overseeing compliance.
PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 is a rigorous system of checks and balances that will equip the industry to more confidently ensure the safety of workers amid an increasingly global network of PPE manufacturers, distributors, importers and testing laboratories.
Ansell has prepared a suite of resources, including videos, guides and posters, visit us to learn how the transition will take place and steps to take to comply to the new regulations.
