Hohenstein tests masks as per European guidelines

Hohenstein tests community masks for safety and other quality requirements based on European guidelines.

Hohenstein, a testing service provider and research partner, announces testing for community masks according to the first European guideline, the CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) 17553:2020. The organisation had already taken a big step towards safety and functionality with the introduction of its quality label for Tested Community Masks. The new “Community Face Coverings- guide to minimum requirements, methods of testing and use” sets minimum requirements for design, performance evaluation, labelling and packaging of both reusable and disposable masks.

Community masks are important in containing the spread of the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. But to fulfil their function, they must meet certain requirements. The objective of the standard is to support manufacturers of masks who have switched production to non-medical, everyday masks. This will provide them with assistance regarding the requirements for such masks, which must also meet the legal requirements for textiles and satisfy certain functional demands.

Uniform product quality and durability standards across Europe are particularly important for containing the spread across borders. Clear product information helps consumers rely on the safety of community masks. The guideline can therefore also serve as a marketing aid for suppliers in international competition.

Standardised test procedures at Hohenstein provide information as to whether everyday masks have sufficient breathability and filter performance. Other quality parameters include washability, fit and safety from harmful substances. Hohenstein also checks compliance with legal requirements and proper labelling and use instructions.

Manufacturers of everyday masks can also earn the Hohenstein Quality Label for Tested Community Masks by proving product performance and certifying to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex.
