    NIOSH Certification for N95 Respirator

    NIOSH Certification also is known as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Certification. NIOSH approval, and certification assuring respirators and Protective Clothing used in the workplace meet the standards. COVID 19 Respirators to follow 42 CFR Part 84 standards.

     

    NIOSH certification can be taken for those designs, manufactures, assembles, or controls the assembly of a respirator and protective clothing

    Surgical N95 Respirator and FDA 510k Clearance

    Surgical N95 Respirator Face Mask under FDA Product Code MSH must undergo NIOSH Certification prior to FDA 510k application and clearance. General N95 face mask (without Virus/ Bacteria protection claim ) under product code MSH can be directly registered and listed without 510k and NIOSH.

     

    N95 Respirator

    An N95 is a respiratory protective Face Mask designed to achieve a very close facial fit and blocks at least 95% of very small (0.3 microns) airborne particles. The “N” stands for “Not resistant to Oil,”

    N95 Respirator Face Mask NIOSH Certification Process

    Step I: Appoint Consultant

    Asses the N95 manufactured conforms to the requirements of 42 CFR Part 84 and check the capability of the manufacturer to develop the technical inputs. The consultant will choose the type of application.

    Step 2: Get the three-character manufacturer's code from NIOSH.

    Based on the type of N95 and type of application, the three-character code must be received for further processing.

    Step 3: Get the standard application form.

    The application will be processed by consultants jointly with the client team and submitted by electronic media. All necessary documents also must be submitted along with the application as specified in CFR.

    Step 4: Get Respirator tested.

    All test samples must identified appropriately and marked as per application reference number and packed as per the relevant protocol and submitted to NIOSH.

    Step 5: Comply with QA documentation.

    Maintain and Implement proper documentation on-site and Get NIOSH approval for your respirator covering below

    a.  Design Drawings

    b.  Quality Control Plan

    c.  Sampling Plan

    d.  User Instructions

    e.  OOS specification

    Which Language all documents and application should be submitted?

    English

    Is Device drawings should be submitted? What format?

    Yes, the drawing must be submitted in English in PDF, Coral draw, Autodesk clearly identified 3 digit manufactures code.

    Is manufacturer must provide vendor qualification documents?

    If the manufacturer controls all specifications for the component, the component vendors do not need to be specified. If the manufacturer does not determine all specifications of the component, then the applicant must provide the name of the vendor, this is mandatory for NIOSH Certification.

    Should the manufacturer submit product label / Information panel sample?

    Yes, the manufacturer must submit Labels along with user instructions.
