 - what does this mean?
Disposable Garments
The Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Directive (89/686/EC) defines items providing protection into varies categories. Garments are generally referred to as simple design - in which case they are Category 1, or complex design - which are Category 3. 

All PPE Products must be CE marked and any Cat 3 PPE item has to be examined and approved by a Notified Body before it can be brought to market. Cat 1 will have a simple CE mark and Cat 3 will have a CE mark plus the number of the Notified Body e.g. 0120 which is the number for SGS Ltd.

Part of the examination process includes evidence of testing. Within Category 3 there are various levels of protection. The BioClean-D range meets the requirements of Type 5 & 6 which are as follows:

Type 5: confirms the ability to withstand fine dry particles
Type 6: confirms the ability to withstand exposure to a light spray, liquid aerosols or low pressure, low volume splashes, against which a complete liquid permeation barrier (at the molecular level) is not required.
