We take note of:

A growing number of product requirements in standards, be it by adding tests in the revision of a standard or by adding new standards.  There is no mechanism to ensure that the added requirements and tests are purely based on added value for the safety and health of the users of the PPE. The ‘CE-marking’ thus becomes more and more expensive, which, without a performant market surveillance leads to a weakened position for our companies within the European market. For markets outside the EU, the competitive position of EU companies is even more at stake.
Therefore we call upon the concerned stakeholders both on European and national level to avoid unnecessary requirement and make sure harmonised standards cover essential health and safety requirements to ensure the protection of the user of the PPE.
