How do I certify a product when there is no European (EN) Standard?

Where there is an absence of an European (EN) Standard, the PPE models can undergo EC Type Examination against a Technical Specification put forward by the manufacturer. However, this must then be reviewed by the Notified Body to ensure that the basic health and safety requirements of the PPE Directive are met.  If all this is satisfactory and the PPE models can be tested against the Technical Specification then the process would continue in the normal way.
