  • COVID-19 : Nouveauté relative à l’évaluation de la conformité des masques réquisitionnés ou importés
  • COVID-19 : Novelty in the conformity assessment of requisitioned or imported masks

In a ministerial instruction dated 23 April 2020, the Ministry of Labour sets out the European Commission’s recommendations aimed at adapting the conditions for placing on the market personal protective equipment such as FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 masks, protective eyewear and visors and medical devices such as surgical masks. These recommendations aim to guarantee their availability by ensuring that the medical equipment and devices thus placed on the market continue to provide an adequate level of protection of the health and safety of users. This new instruction repeals and replaces two former ministerial instructions (n°2020/55 and n°2020/57) which concerned the implementation of the European Commission’s recommendation on conformity assessment and market surveillance procedures in the context of the threat posed by COVID-19. This new ministerial instruction came into force on 30 April 2020.
