CEN Workshop on 18 March - Sustainability in PPE: addressing the challenge through standardization

During the COVID-19 health crisis huge amounts of disposable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are being used, even when reusable solutions are available. At different levels, the realisation that also PPE needs to be more sustainable is growing. The CEN-CENELEC PPE Sector forum would like to support these efforts by facilitating an exchange with all involved stakeholders to discuss ways to include sustainability aspects into standardization.

Speakers will include Henk Vanhoutte, chair of the CEN CENELEC PPE Sector Forum and Secretary General of the European Safety Federation, SBS Board Member Andreas Schumacher and representatives from European Commission DG GROW (PPE Working Group), ECOS and CEN SABE.

The workshop will be held online on Thursday, 18 March 2021, from 9.30 to 16.00 CET.
