module b: Type-Examination

Type examination is the part of a conformity assessment procedure in which an Approved Body examines the technical design of PPE and verifies and attests that the technical design of the PPE meets the requirements of the Regulation that apply to it.

This is an option for PPE  Risk Category II or III. It is carried out by assessment of the adequacy of the technical design of the PPE through: 

  • examination of the technical documentation
  • examination of a sample(s), representative of the production envisaged, of the complete PPE (production type).
