To support companies in their efforts to produce performing and safe community masks, Centexbel has set up a performance certificate “COVID-19 - Approved by Centexbel”.

The certification is based on the conditions and criteria specified in paragraphs 8.4 and 8.5 of the Belgian Official Reference document: NBN/DTD S 65-001:2020 - Community- en Artisanale maskers - Gids van de minimale vereisten, confectie, onderhoud en gebruik (Masques "community" et masques artisanaux - Guide d'exigences minimales, de confection, d'entretien et d'usage).

The authorisation to label a product with “COVID-19 - Approved by Centexbel” is limited to a maximum of 1 (one) year.

It goes without saying, that community masks are to be considered as an additional safety measurement and will never replace the basic guidelines of social distancing and hand hygiene!
