Performance, Quality & Safety Requirements for Consumer Face Masks
The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way that people around the world live and work. One of the most notable differences is that it’s now common for people to wear face masks in public settings – like the office, grocery store, on public transportation and in restaurants – to help limit the spread of the virus. Many countries now have guidance around barrier masks, which are typically called community or fashion face masks, usually made of fabric and not intended for use by medical professionals as personal protective equipment (PPE).
To learn about the various requirements and standards that have been introduced for fabric face masks, and how you could make use of the Intertek Mask Label to build customer confidence in your mask products, download our webinar: Performance, Quality & Safety Requirements for Consumer Face Masks
