CERTIFICATION OF FALL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT. CE MARKING
CERTIFICATION OF FALL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT, WORK AT HEIGHT AND FALL ARREST SYSTEMS
Fall protection equipment is personal protective equipment intended to protect the wearer in the case of a fall likely to cause injury.
When a body falls it releases kinetic energy – the energy of motion – which increases with the height of the fall. When transformed into impact energy by shock or a sudden stop, the energy is further transformed into a mechanical force that can break bones and damage internal organs.
REQUIREMENTS TO CERTIFY FALL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT. WORK AT HEIGHT AND FALL ARREST SYSTEMS.
Fall protection equipment must meet the technical criteria contained in EU Regulation 2016/425 on Personal Protective Equipment in order to be marketed in the European Union.
The conformity assessment of this type of certificate must be carried out by a Notified Body. AITEX is Notified Body number 0161 assigned by the European Commission to assess the conformity of Personal Protective Equipment, as well as for its CE marking before it is placed on the community market.
Fall protection equipment is classified as Type III Personal Protection Equipment, since it avoids risks that can have very serious consequences, such as death or irreversible damage to health in relation to falls from a height. Category III Personal Protective Equipment must undergo an EU type examination (module B) and any of the following options: conformity with the type based on internal production control plus a supervised control of the product at random intervals (module C2 ) or conformity to type based on quality assurance of the production process (module D).
