EN374-3:2003 is to be replaced by EN16523-1 by the end of the year

Certainty at first sight!
EN374-3:2003 is to be replaced by EN16523-1 by the end of the year
Both methods are technically very similar, but there will be significant changes in requirements. The list of challenge chemicals will increase from 12 to 18 and the Beaker symbol will be replaced by 3 categories of Erlenmeyer flask pictogram.
  • Type C for 'Simple protection' - at least level 1 against 1 chemical on the list
  • Type B for 'Medium protection' - at least level 2 against 3 chemicals on the list
  • Type A for 'High protection' - at least level 2 against 6 chemicals on the list

All chemically protective gloves sold within the European Union must be type approved against PPE Directive 89/686/EEC and bear the CE certification symbol. Only gloves that were tested according EN374 standards may display the CE logo and the result-related pictogram symbols. When the EN374 series of testing methods is revised, the marking requirements will change.
