Since June 2001, the European Standard for particulate
respirators has be changed from EN149:1991 to EN149:2001.
The major change in EN149:2001
is that all particulate respirator will have to
provide protection against solid (non-oil)
and liquid (oil) aerosols. That is, the
S (solid) class and SL (solid and liquid) class
have been combined into three categories only -
FFP1, FFP2 and FFP3. Your selection will be easier
because each respirator covers a wider range of
San Huei obtained EN149:2001 through the notified
body BSI (CE 0086) in July 2001 and the new products
cover the full range of EN149:2001 - FFP1, FFP2
and FFP3. It is our best intention to provide the
up-to-date quality products for our customers.
How to identify if your respirator meets the
latest EN149:2001 standard? All
EN149:2001 certified respirators
will bear the marking of EN149:2001 while the
previously certified respirators will bear the
marking of EN149 only.
