The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a rise in counterfeit Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) products appearing on the market with misleading performance and quality claims and fake documents of compliance.
What if you could reduce the hidden risk of non-compliant PPE? Many companies are now tasking suppliers to provide evidence of due diligence and conformity and upskilling to identify false compliance certificates.

Please note that this is an administrative process only and therefore, there are currently no changes to testing and review criteria or processes.
This means some CE marked and future UKCA marked PPE could be non-compliant, putting wearers businesses and individuals at risk.
