COVID-19 Suspicious Certificates for PPE

COVID-19 Suspicious Certificates for PPE

Everybody is working very hard and with the best intentions to make the necessary PPE available to the healthcare workers and other people involved in the fight against the COVID-19 crisis. 

Unfortunately, according to ESF (European Safety Federation) market is fulll of traders with ‘certificates’ or other documents used as basis for CE marking of PPE (including FFP2/FFP3 masks and eye protection), while these ‘certificates’ have no legal value and can not be used as conclusion of conformity assessment.

Please check out the full article with a list of fake certificates and examples here.

If you have a 'certificate' for PPE that is clearly not from a Notified Body for PPE (this certainly means all institutes from outside EU, Switzerland or Turkey), there is no doubt that the document is not a valid legal base for CE marking.


Be careful and check all certificates and test reports very precisely. Feel free to contact our team to assist you in company verification before you purchase the goods.

Stay safe,
