TÜV Rheinland Obtains CNAS and CMA Mask Testing Qualification

09-01-20Greater China

The international independent third-party testing, inspection and certification company, TÜV Rheinland Greater China, announced that TÜV Rheinland Shanghai has successfully obtained CNAS (China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment) and CMA ((China Inspection Body and Laboratory Mandatory Approval) mask testing qualification in August.

Masks, one of the effective types of protective equipment for prevention of virus spread, are playing an important role during the COVID-19 pandemic, and their quality is closely related to the health and safety of the public. With rapidly rising demand for masks both locally and globally, how to ensure the quality of masks on the market and protect those in need from virus infection has become vital. Whether selling domestically or exporting overseas, Chinese manufacturers need to obtain a test report issued by a third-party testing company. In China, testing reports with CMA symbol can be used for product quality evaluation, results, and judicial appraisal, and have legal effect. The TÜV Rheinland Mask Testing Laboratory can provide testing services for medical protective masks, medical surgical masks, daily protective masks, and industrial protective masks basing on CNAS/CMA accreditation. The following table can help customers understand more clearly the usage standards and usage ranges for different mask types.

TÜV Rheinland, as a notified body authorized by the European Union, can provide Conformity Testing services according to EU Directive for medical device products such as medical masks, forehead thermometers, ventilators, and CT scanners. As a CNAS accredited laboratory, it provides testing services for medical masks in accordance with the harmonized standard EN 14683:2019 of Medical Devices Directive.
