WHAT IS NF BARRIER FACE MASKS CERTIFICATION?

The coronavirus epidemic that affects our country and beyond has led to the proliferation of tutorials and patterns for the production of alternative protective masks. To support the initiatives and federate best practices, AFNOR led the realization of an AFNOR SPEC Face Masks Barriers , a real guide to manufacture and measure the performance of masks.

To go further in the process, The AFNOR Group teams have developed the NF Barrier Face Masks certification, which makes it possible to professionally certify the manufacture and performance of the barrier masks that you make on the basis of the AFNOR SPEC S76-001 and the European guide CWA 17553.

The NF Barrier Face Masks certification meets the criteria of the French Interministerial Note of March 29, 2020, updated on April 26, 2020.
