Personal protective equipment (PPE) is subject to compulsory conformity assessment with regard to safety before marketing in the Czech Republic. Basic requirements for PPE are defined in the Regulation (EU) 2016/425 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on personal protective equipment and repealing Council Directive 89/686/. According to the risk analysis PPE are divided into 3 categories with the prescribed methods of conformity assessment. Categories with higher risk levels (categories 2 and 3) require compulsory notified body. In the case of simple types (category 1) the manufacturer may perform the EU conformity assessment itself without presence of the authorised person. All PPE must bear the CE mark and the manufacturer or its authorised representative issues the EU declaration of conformity.
