New standards for face coverings

For those producing their own face coverings, not classed as PPE, verifying quality and protection has not been simple. BSI Kitemark certification for face coverings has been created to provide certification for this new sector. Based on the recognized AFNOR specification,only face coverings that  have met the necessary requirements are awarded BSI Kitemark certification and can display the BSI Mark of Trust. To ensure a robust and trustworthy certification programme, products require ongoing testing to ensure that face coverings continue to meet the necessary 
requirements.

Whilst BSI recognise that face coverings are not a regulated product and they don’t fall under the PPE Regulation or the Medical Devices Regulation, BSI have developed this certification programme to offer independent approval that the face coverings meet a basic level of protection. At a time when we’re looking for trust, the Kitemark provides a further end user reassurance.
