PPE Guidelines 2018

Linee guida 2018 DPI Regolamento (UE) 2016/425 

1st Edition - April 2018

PPE Regulation Guidelines - Guide to application of Regulation EU 2016/425 on personal protective equipment

The objective of these PPE Guidelines is to clarify certain matters and procedures referred to in Regulation (EU) 2016/425 on personal protective equipment. They provide a cross reference from the legal text of the Regulation to explanations by EU sectorial experts. The Guidelines should be used in conjunction with the Regulation itself and with the European Commission’s “The ‘Blue Guide’ on the implementation of EU product rules”.

These Guidelines are not only for the use of Member States’ competent authorities, but also by the main economic operators concerned, such as manufacturers, their trade associations, bodies in charge of the preparation of standards as well as those entrusted with the conformity assessment procedures.

First and foremost, this document must ensure that, when correctly applied, the Regulation leads to the removal of obstacles and difficulties related to the free circulation (free movement) of goods within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) (see footnote 2). It should be noted that the statements in these Guidelines refer only to the application of Regulation (EU) 2016/425 unless otherwise indicated. All parties concerned should be aware of other requirements, which may also apply.

The PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 is total harmonisation and a “New Approach” legislation aligned to the “New Legislative Framework”. It lays down essential health and safety requirements (EHSRs) and leaves it to standards, primarily European harmonised standards, to give technical expression of the relevant requirements contained in the Regulation.

Regulation (EU) 2016/425 replaces the previous PPE Directive 89/686/EEC as from 21 April 2018. After a transition period, as indicated in Article 47, from 21 April 2019 the PPE Regulation is the sole legal instrument applicable for products in its scope to be placed on the EU/EEA market.

The reader has to be aware that when PPE is intended for use in a workplace, national and Union legislation, intended to ensure the safety of employees, will usually apply. Whereas “New Approach / “New Legislative Framework” legislation set the highest possible requirements given their overall objectives and hence do not allow for additional national provisions within scope, “use” Directives (89/391/EEC4, 89/656/EEC5) set minimum requirements. In effect this means that national authorities, following the agreement of other Member States by means of the notification procedure under Directive (EU) 2015/1535, can put in place further requirements relating to “use” and selection so long as these do not constitute a barrier to trade.
