Redaktion PSI Journal

Published on 15.06.2020

In the midst of the current coronavirus crisis, many companies as well as individuals are deciding to produce or procure community masks, oronasal masks, or even everyday masks to combat the Covid-19 virus, or to distribute them to their own staff. Intertek, a leading provider of comprehensive quality assurance solutions for a variety of industries worldwide and a partner of the PSI Network, offers a customisable testing programme as well as complementary services to prove the marketability of such Covid-19 masks.

The services in this area include:
• Chemical tests
• Physical tests (including particle filter performance, air permeability)
• Inspections
• Consultation

The global network of inspectors can also ensure that buyers and distributors are not harmed by counterfeit products, damaged goods or poor quality deliveries. Inspectors check products – including oronasal masks, disinfectants, disposable gloves and medical devices – for external integrity, quantity and identity. The customer receives an up-to-date inspection report. More information about these services and Intertek’s services for oronasal masks (including a downloadable fact sheet) can be found here
