The products are classed as personal protective equipment (PPE). The products were not supplied with the required compliance documentation or markings to demonstrate that they have been adequately conformity assessed. Mandatory third-party conformity assessment is required by the relevant Regulations for those products which protect against more serious risks, the absence of such independent assessment for such a product may increase the risk to the consumer that the product may not perform as expected when relied upon to protect them from harm in the water.
The products do not meet the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/425 on personal protective equipment.
The products have been recalled from end users and the listings removed by the online marketplace (Amazon).
We recommend owners stop using these products immediately. Contact the distributor you purchased from to request redress.
