New SME project on protective equipment and textile care standards

Brussels, January 2018 – Small Business Standards (SBS) is pleased to announce a new sectoral approach aimed at better understanding and meeting standardisation needs for those SMEs which manufacture, distribute and maintain Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), that are products the user can wear or hold, in order to be protected against hazards either at home, at work or whilst engaging in leisure activities. The sectoral approach also includes hygiene and sterilisation services for medical devices like reusable or textiles. This project brings together two important players, who already collaborate with SBS: the German Textile Care Association (DTV) and SME Safety, the European association of SMEs that manufacture safety products.
