Intertek Semko AB, NB 0413, have been made aware of a number of manufacturers selling medical surgical/face masks falsely claiming to be certified by Intertek. Intertek have seen false ‘certificates’ on letterheads, or the use of Intertek’s logo and/or name and Notified body number 0413, as the basis for CE marking against the Medical Device Directive or Personal Protective Equipment Directive.
