Know what this means and how PPE regulations will influence implementation

In this webinar, Eric Van Wely, Global Regulatory Affairs and Standards Manager at DuPont, will outline the recent changes to the EN388 standard and the effect it has both from a global and European perspective as well as how the revised standard will help the manufacturer and end-user align with global and local needs.

This event will offer an in-depth look at the global cut standards, focusing on EN388 and how it better protects the end user.

Participants will come away with a greater understanding of changes affecting glove performance, changes in labelling and the testing being used to measure cut resistance. Additionally, participants will reflect on how EN388 will be implemented with the new EU PPE regulation (EU) 2016/425.
