Protective Gloves Seminar
Wednesday 1st April 2020
In order to CE Mark and sell category II or category III protective gloves, manufacturers will require test reports to show that testing has been carried out in accordance with European testing standards. The key glove performance standards to assess protection are EN 388 (mechanical risks), EN 407 (thermal risks), EN 511 (protection against cold) and EN ISO 374-1 which sets performance requirements for chemical and microbiological protection. These standards will be explained during this seminar with the aid of some practical demonstrations.
This year has seen an important change in the glove industry with the publication of the updated general performance requirements for gloves, ISO 21420:2020. The main changes from its predecessor, EN 420, will be explained along with sessions providing detailed information on the PPE Regulation, glove marking, food contact suitability, chemical permeation and degradation. There will be opportunities for questions throughout the day and time for individual consultations after the seminar.
A buffet lunch is included, along with an optional tour of SATRA’s testing facilities at the end of the seminar.
Who should attend?
This event will be useful for protective glove importers, distributors and retailers, especially those who are new to the industry and would like to discover more about glove testing and certification.
