Informations & documents
The new PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 replaces the previous Directive 89/686/EEC as of 21 April 2018. From then onwards, only the new regulation will be used for certification – however, products that still comply with the “old” EEC Directive may still be marketed until April 2019. Transition from the PPE Directive to the regulation changes its legal form, thus the regulation will automatically come into force in all Member States of the EU and be applicable as national law.
