PPE Footwear and High Visibility Clothing Update

PPE footwear and high visibility clothing standard updates.

With regulations and standards changing to reflect increasingly stringent requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE), businesses which are better equipped to adapt and respond proactively will often have a competitive edge. PPE products destined for EU and UK markets need to meet certification requirements of the EU 2016/425 regulation and the UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) standard – and a good understanding of current legislation is essential.

This webinar provides an overview of the recent standard updates to PPE footwear and high-visibility protective clothing, and explores the various routes to certification. The ISO 20344 test method, ISO 20345 for safety footwear, ISO 20346 for protective footwear and ISO 20347 for occupational footwear are all keystones of PPE regulation which will be discussed. 

Recent ANSI and EN standards updates for high-visibility clothing will also be included. You will also learn about how SGS’s services make it easier to meet both essential and additional requirements for PPE. In addition, the webinar will explore how to obtain EU Conformitè Europëenne (CE) and United Kingdom Conformity Assessment (UKCA) certification.
