Eurofins launches the Tested Quality seal for Community Masks
Hygienic masks, also called Community masks, are the ones used by the general public. These are intended to eventually protect others from the wearer, thereby contributing to mitigate the spread of the virus.
In the middle of the coronavirus crisis, many governments have made the use of masks recommendable, or even mandatory in public places, where safety distances can’t be guaranteed.
In parallel, international, regional and local authorities are trying to funnel efforts into eventual standardization of a minimum quality benchmark, such as the recommendations by the World Health Organization, the EU CEN guideline document CWA 17533 or the local initiatives in Spain, France and Mexico (UNE 0065, UNE 0064- 1, UNE 0064-2, AFNOR-SPEC-S76, breathability, particle filtration, etc.).
It goes without saying that Eurofins can test against all above standards and guidelines.
In an effort to provide our clients with an evident proof of compliance for hygienic masks, our experts have developed the Tested Quality seal for Community masks, that shall be granted to those masks meeting the thoroughly designed testing protocols.
