Surgical masks sold in the EU require a CE mark as they are a class-one medical device. They must prove features such as breathability, splash resistance and efficiency in filtering bacteria. A similar test is performed for the U.S. market by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Due to a high increase in testing demands, as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, SGS in Hong Kong has ramped up its arsenal of testing equipment to increase capacity and to reduce the time required to demonstrate product compliance with mandatory international standards.

In this webinar, our experts will address the various standards relating to the EU and U.S., and how SGS can help you to achieve compliance.
