BfArM special approval of masks was restricted

Up until now, it has been possible to market dust protective breathing masks with test certificates for FFP2, KN95 or N95 as medical devices for customers in the healthcare sector by special approval from the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM). According to the BfArM, many masks were unfortunately put into circulation via this route with the aid of forged certificates that fail to meet what they promise. In addition, the market is once again sufficiently supplied with regularly certified masks, which means that special approval will only be granted for masks for which a test certificate in conformity the corona test procedures of the Central Office of the Federal States for Safety Technology (ZLS) is in hand.
