VALIDITY ENQUIRIES - PPE ‘CE’ Certificates and Approval Decisions

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are receiving an extraordinary number of requests to verify certification. 

For us to do so, we ask that people do the following: 

  • Please obtain an EU Declaration of Conformity prior to contacting INSPEC.
    A Manufacturer is required to produce one, for goods to be sold into the EU, and all Importers / Distributors / Resellers are required to hold and provide a copy, if based in the EU. 
  • Please submit full documentation.
    Partial documents, e.g. page one only, cannot be verified. 
  • Please do not submit modified documents where the Manufacturer name and or address is obscured.
    We will no longer respond to email requests to verify documents which are incomplete, modified or difficult to read. 
  • Once you have an EU Declaration of Conformity, and if provided, a Certificate, we can verify through email.

NOTE - Emails without an attached EU Declaration of Conformity WILL NOT receive a response.
