Changes to PPE Regulations

PPENow over 20 years old, the PPE directive is being updated to reflect current technologies and processes for developing and bringing PPE to the market. The changes mean the old directive will be re-implemented as a regulation in 2018 rather than remain in its current status, and the new regulation will not have to transpose¬†into each Member State’s national law.

The British Standards Institute has a whitepaper detailing the history, the proposed scope of the regulation, obligations and timelines which can be viewed by clicking here.
