What Do Cat I, Cat II and Cat III mean?


The PPE Directive 89/686/EEC groups personal protective equipment into three categories according to the level of protection they provides. Brief overviews of each category can be found here:

Category I products are defined as “Simple Design” and are intended for minimal risk environments eg low-grade gloves which are intended to offer general purpose barrier protection.

Category II products are known as “Intermediate Design” and are suitable in low risk hazards. These products require some level of testing at an accredited testing facility. Examples include cut resistant gloves and high visibility clothing.

Category III products are known as “Complex Design” and are designed to offer protection against more serious hazards, which have the potential to cause serious harm or death. These products require testing at an accredited testing facility (the Notified Body Number of the testing facility will be listed alongside the CE symbol). Examples of Category III products include flame retardant clothing and gloves offering chemical protection.
