CE Standards for protective clothing

 

Protective coveralls are designed to resist various hazardous situations. EEC guideline 89/686 (2016/425), PPE is divided into 3 categories:

 

Category I: Simple products

Basic PPE protects against minimal risks.

 

Category II: Intermediate products

PPE that cannot be clearly classified under Category 1 or 3 is assigned to Category 2.

 

Category III: Complex products

PPE of complex design is intended to protect against mortal danger and/or serious and irreversible injury to health.
