CE mark for solar UV protection clothing

 

From 21st April 2019, solar ultraviolet (UV) protection clothing (caps and helmets, gloves, shoes, garments, etc..) with claims or skin protective properties against  UV radiation need to be CE marked as a personal protective equipment (PPE).

 

These products are considered a PPE of Category I (according to Regulation (EU) 2016/425). They must have a label with the CE mark and the manufacturer must create a technical file with all the information of the product as required by the PPE Regulation.

 

There is not a harmonized standard to test these products, but usually EN 13758-1 and EN 13758-2 are used to determine UV radiation transmittance and the requirements of marking of clothing.
