BSI Kitemark Certification for face coverings

What are face coverings?

Face coverings have become increasingly part of our everyday lives. They are designed to cover the wearers nose and mouth and are intended to protect others, not the wearer, against the risk of the spread of infection.

It's important to note that face coverings are not PPE nor a medical device, therefore face coverings are not assessed to conform to PPE or medical device requirements. A PPE or medical mask must meet certain regulatory requirements and dependent on the level of protection, may need to be independently assessed by an approved notified body such as BSI.
