Under the New PPE Regulation Distributors and Importers now carry clear responsibilities in providing PPE. Become a Registered Safety Supplier with the BSIF and you can demonstrate that your business is compliant.
Statement to Support and Guide UK Commercial Operators from Trading Standards:
Being a member of the British Safety Industry Federation's Registered Safety Supplier Scheme and abiding by its terms and conditions and adhering to the prescribed and Audited Compliance Protocol will provide to Trading Standards, that you have a due diligence system in place to demonstrate compliance with the Obligations and Responsibilities of economic operators as referenced within the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 pertaining to obligations and responsibilities as an ‘Importer’ and or a ‘Distributor’. It does not necessarily provide a guarantee that all products are compliant.
The Trading Standards statement above supports the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme. Demonstrate that your business complies with the PPE Regulation by utilising the required Compliance Protocol, now available for all UK Importers and Distributors as members of the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme.
