Regulation 2016/425

All personal protection equipment (PPE) should be commercialised in the European market in accordance with the standards established in Regulation (EU) 2016/425.
Regulation (EU) 2016/425 sets out the fundamental safety requirements that products and procedures should meet before a PPE is commercialised in the internal market.

In this way, Regulation (EU) 2016/425 facilitates the free movement of PPEs in the internal market in full compliance with the minimum requirements regarding the consumers’ safety (the so-called fundamental requirements).

The technical development of fundamental requirements is based on European harmonised standards, which give a presumption of conformity with the laws.
Manufacturers are obliged to affix the EC marking on their equipment as a visible sign of the conformity with the fundamental requirements.
The regulation (EU) 2016/425 resorts to notified bodies like Leitat  for several tasks. This is the case for the EU type examination (module B) of PPEs belonging to categories II and III and of the production control of PPEs category III (module C2 or D).
