Mah Sing Healthcare has obtained the UKCA PPE Certificate Category III for its nitrile gloves.
Category III PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) indicates the product has passed the most vigorous tests including protection against viruses, bacteria and other micro-organisms, permeation tests, degradation and resistance to penetration. It indicates that the gloves may protect against deadly hazards or serious irreversible damage to health risks.
Medical gloves with Category III PPE cert can protect against chemical exposure. These types of gloves are used for conducting medical examination, dentistry, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, as well as laboratory work.
To recap, UKCA is the new UK product marking for goods sold in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). The certificate was issued by Satra Technology, an Approved Body which carries out conformity assessment. Satra Technology had earlier issued the EU PPE Certificate Category III to Mah Sing Healthcare, covering the European Union (EU).
With this certification, Mah Sing Healthcare is able to target a bigger group of buyers which require a high level of quality assurance, for example big medical players in the UK and Europe.
Mah Sing Healthcare’s glove factory has completed the commissioning of all their 12 production lines, and received the necessary certifications to market medical-grade gloves in a wide range of countries, including the United States, Canada, the European Union, and the European Economic Area (EEA). With a stronger sales force and wider geographic reach, Mah Sing Healthcare is well positioned to meet the
ongoing demand for gloves.
