2019 has been another busy year within the PPE Product Certification sector of BSI. April saw the end of the transition to the new PPE Regulation and we managed to transfer over 800 certificates, including module B, D and C2 from the PPE Directive into the PPE Regulation.
After the PPE Regulation came into force, BSI received Notified Body status for the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation out of our office in Amsterdam, allowing us to offer two Notified Body services, one for 0086 from the UK, and the other for 2797 from the Amsterdam office.
In the Summer of 2019, BSI also became a notified body for ESMA (Emirates Body for Standardization and Metrology) for the provision of ECAS certification which is mandated throughout the Emirates (UAE). This enables BSI to support clients with the export of PPE products to the UAE.
As 2020 looks set to be another very busy year, we’d like to thank all our clients for your support in 2019, and we look forward to working with you in 2020.
