Coding & Marking Systems for Face Respirators & MASK

Clearly mark the nature, extent and limits of the protective function on masks

The United States and the European Union require specific standards for the design, manufacturing, testing, and product markings for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

In the US, NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) approved N95 respirators or filtering facepiece respirators (FFR) need to be marked with an approval number which can be verified on the NIOSH Certified Equipment List (CEL) or the NIOSH Trusted-Source page. NIOSH-approved FFRs will always have one the following designations: N95, N99, N100, R95, R99, R100, P95, P99, P100.
