Hand Protection Legislation

The general requirements of the European 

Protective Equipment Directive, 89/686/EEC, 

have been in force since 1995. This directive 

requires all protective gloves to be CE marked. 

The format of the CE mark depends on the 

category that applies to the glove.

Category 1 - Simple Design
Provides protection for minimal risk only - for use in areas 
where the risk is low and where effects of not wearing 
hand protection are easily reversible or superfi cial.

Category 2 - Intermediate Design
Covers other risks that are not defi ned by categories 
1 and 3.

Category 3 - Complex Design
Gloves that protect against risks that could result in 
irreversible injury or mortal danger.

General Requirements of EN420
EN420 defi nes the general requirements for most types 
of protective gloves:
•  Product and packaging information and marking
•  Design and construction
•  Fitness for the purpose
• Sizing
•  Comfort and effi ciency
• Innocuousness
• Storage
