Published on

As of 21 April 2018, Directive 89/686/EEC will be repealed by the new Regulation (EU) 2016/425 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on personal protective equipment.
The new PPE Regulation is aligned to the New Legislative Framework policy. In addition, it slightly modifies the scope and the risk categorisation of products. It also clarifies the documentary obligations of economic operators.
The Commission organised a workshop on the transition from Directive 89/686/EEC to Regulation (EU) 2016/425. This took place on 16 November 2016 in Brussels.
