Category III PPE protects against “high biological risk”, i.e. risks that can lead to very serious health consequences and damage such as contact with hazardous chemical substances and mixtures, harmful and infectious biological agents, including those present in air and aerosols or solid dust particles, preventing their contamination and contagion.

The products meet the standards set out in EU Regulation 2016/425 on PPE (which sets out the requirements for the design and manufacture of PPE and designates the risk category, the minimum risk for Category I PPE, the high biological risk for Category III PPE). They also comply with UNI EN ISO 13688:2013 (which specifies the general performance requirements for ergonomics, safety, size designation, compatibility and marking of protective clothing and the information to be provided by the manufacturer with the protective clothing) and comply with EU Regulation 14126:2003 (which establishes the performance requirements for protective clothing against infectious agents).
