I want to import a PPE product into the EU - what do I need to do?

If the product is already CE marked then you shall ensure you have the necessary EU Declaration of Conformity – you may wish to confirm its validity by submitting to the relevant Notified Body or by reviewing the Type-examination certificate (and Approval Decision if applicable).

If the product is not CE marked, and is not exclusively for minimal risks (i.e. is Cat II or III), then the product is required to have type-examination (Module B) as a minimum. Products for environments/uses with very serious consequences such as death or irreversible damage to health also require an Approval Decision via assessment of production items (Module C2) or production control (Module D).

Please contact our Certification department for more information.
