ISO 10993-5 & ISO 10993-10 Testings

There are two  ISO 10993-5 & ISO 10993-10 testings which are critical when applying CE Registration.

In the market, most of consumers focus the percentage of BFE & VFE, Class / type of Face Mask, the product of origin….

EN14683 is International Standard for testing Face Mask Performance. The EU Country accept EN14683 Testing for Disposable Face Mask (Medical Device).

However, ATSMF2100 is one of American Standard for testing Face Mask Performance. The US accept this standard for Disposable Face Mask (Medical Device).

ISO 10993-5 ISO 10993-10 Testing

When manufacturer outside EU Country export the Disposable Face Mask, the manufacturer shall apply CE Registration and assign EU Representative before export.

When CE Registration, the Manufacturer is required to submit

  • product information,
  • material information,
  • production information,
  • Technical File,
  • Clinical Report,
  • Testing Report such as EN14683, ISO 10993-5 & ISO 10993-10 Testings.

As the ISO 10993-10 Testing involve animal testing, it take a longer time when comparing with the EN14683 Testing.

Now  Face Mask market is highly competitive, so many manufacturer produce Face Mask with different colours and creative patterns.
