DMT tests protective masks in fight against Corona

Governments, local authorities and businesses are all working hard to import protective equipment, especially protective masks, and make them available to medical personnel as quickly as possible. DMT is now making an important contribution to this with its Laboratory for Air Hygiene in Essen, under the lead of TÜV NORD.

There protective masks will undergo testing according to a shortened certification procedure, recently approved by ZLS (German Federal Office for Safety Technology). This is based on the recommendation of the European Commission to allow the purchase and use of protective equipment without a valid CE mark if it passes certain test standards, thus drastically speeding up availability at this critical time.

We are committed to helping in the fight against COVID-19 and are proud to be one of only three test centres nationwide to offer the tests, which are being certified by TÜV NORD CERT. Thanks to the team of Dirk Renschen, Head of Air Quality at DMT as well as the colleagues from TÜV NORD GROUP for making facilities for the test procedure available within a very short time.

Further details of our testing services in this field can be found under Air Quality and Air Hygiene.
