To carry the CE mark, chemical protective clothing must;
• Pass one or more of the six specified “Type” tests
• Be correctly labelled
• Meet or exceed the minimum requirements expected from the physical and chemical barrier properties of the materials used.
To use the CE mark, the manufacturer of chemical protective clothing must;
• Manufacture products that consistently reach an acceptable level of quality

Ansell Microgard® Guide to European Norms for Chemical Protective Clothing


To assist you with the selection of chemical protective clothing the EU has identified six “types” of protective garments within Category III of the PPE directive.

Certification to a particular “type” offers an indication of your suits protection against a particular hazard (gas, liquid or dust). As a manufacturer it is our responsibility to ensure that our products meet the requirements of the applicable standards.

However, even after all this stringent testing and certification CE marking only indicates that the chemical protective clothing meets certain minimum requirements.

Specifiers of protective clothing should be aware that conformance to “Type” standards does not necessarily mean that the garment is 100% impervious to their hazard. In the case of the Type 5 particulate test garments are allowed individual leakages of up to 30%, providing the average for the suits tested is less than 15%.

To that end protective performance levels may differ from one manufacturer to another, even if their products are certified with the same Type.

At Ansell Microgard Ltd we can provide you with guidance on selecting the appropriate type of garment for your application.
