Test + certify respirators

EU-type examination, certification and quality assurance tests

Due to the Corona pandemic, there is currently an increased need for respirators. ift Rosenheim is accredited according to EN ISO/IEC 17025 and offers as notified body according to the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 type tests as well as certifications for these masks (e.g. FFP2). In addition, independent quality assurance tests can be carried out based on EN 149 and the CPA testing principle.

Testing and certification of FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3 masks 

ift Rosenheim is notified as a testing and certification body for respiratory protective devices as well as filtering half masks with/without valves according to EN 149. This allows your particle filtering half masks (FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3) to be tested, certified and monitored.  

Respirators are classified in risk category III of the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425. Therefore, in addition to the EU-type examination (Module B/Annex V), one of the following modules is required as a prerequisite for CE marking:

  • Module C2/Annex VII: Internal production control with monitored product tests at irregular intervals by ift Rosenheim (as notified body)
  • Module D/Annex VIII: Quality assurance system for the production process, monitored by ift Rosenheim (as notified body)

Then, the manufacturer can affix the CE marking.  

The test rigs used were largely developed and produced by our subsidiary ift MessTec GmbH. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in individual test rigs! !


Quality assurance of respirators

In order to prove the quality of the masks you have purchased or to check the consistent product quality, ift Rosenheim offers a test based on EN 149 or the CPA testing principle. Quality assurance can be performed completely or on individual characteristics, such as the filter penetration. We will be pleased to compile an individual test plan for you.
This enables clients (e.g. hospitals, consumer protection, associations or authorities) to independently and impartially ensure the consistent product quality of the respirators they use and to create lasting confidence in the product among end users. The tests are made within a few days and you will receive a qualified test result for your respirators at short notice. 

More information on this is available in the “Test methods for quality assurance” (available in German)
