“Masks COVID-19 Approved”
CITEVE assigns a hallmark
“Masks – COVID-19 Approved.” This is the hallmark, which CITEVE launched and which allows consumers and producers to recognize masks or raw materials that have been tested and validated by an independent entity, with accredited laboratories.
The creation of this distinguishing feature follows the publication by the Directorate-General for Health of the technical specifications for Community Masks, in the framework of the fight against COVID-19, and CITEVE is empowered to issue declarations of conformity both for this type of masks and for the raw materials that may be used in their confection.
CITEVE gives a distinctive hallmark to the approved raw materials, which its producers can use in their business contacts, thus giving customers the assurance that they have been tested and have complied with the specifications required for use in the production of Community Masks.
On the other hand, CITEVE gives masks a mark that their producers can affix to their packaging, allowing the consumer to recognize a mask that has been tested and checked for compliance with the required technical specifications.
This distinguishing feature also tells you whether it is a single-use mask or reusable and, if so, how many times it can be washed without affecting its performance, as well as what type of use it has been approved for: professional use or general use. Finally, the mark also features a QR Code to access the website where consumers can see a list of approved masks.
