Always well ahead of the game, the JSP Group has ensured that customers buying a Swiss One product today can have total confidence that it is future-proofed. Each item has been certified as per the EU PPE Regulation No 2016/425 and is CE marked. This Regulation replaces the old PPE Directive. The entire Swiss one range will be certified to the PPE Regulation by its enforcement date of 21 April 2018, years ahead of the 2023 official deadline.

« Always first off the mark in ensuring safety, JSP Group has gained advanced certification from BSI across a large selection of our world-renowned products, including head, hearing, eyewear and respiratory protection. Gaining this important certification means that all our products will legally be able to be sold in both the EU and the UK, and demonstrates our total readiness for the coming Regulation, well before we need to be by law. It is a huge achievement for the company, and one for which we have worked extremely hard. JSP customers will therefore never need to have any worries about product compliance. »

Frame Markings

Frame marking must include :

The CE Symbol and manufacturer’s name or identification. In Europe, the EN standard number is mandatory together with the various use and mechanical strength symbols, in accordance with the tests requested by the manufacturer.

Our manufacturer identification

CE : Conformity marking to PPE Directive 89/686/EEC and PPE Regulation 2016/425.

Z87+ : ANSI symbol is for item sold out of Europe and and in areas requesting ANSI standards.

Use symbols

  • 3Liquid droplets or splashes
  • 4Large dust particles > 5 microns
  • 5Gas and fine dust particles < 5 microns
  • 8Electrical short circuit arc
  • 9Molten metal and hot solids

Mechanical strength symbols

  • SIncreased robustness, resists a 22 mm, 43 g ball falling 1.30 m
  • FLow energy impact, resists a 6 mm, 0.86 g ball at 45 m/s.
  • BMedium energy impact, resists a 6 mm, 0.86 g ball at 120 m/s.
  • AHigh energy impact, resists a 6 mm, 0.86 g ball at 190 m/s.

With the mentioned new PPE regulation, manufacturers must indicate, on the PPE, their name & registered trade mark and the postal address at which they can be contacted or where that is not possible, on its packaging or in a document accompanying the PPE. The address shall indicate a single point at which the manufacturer can be contacted. The contact details shall be in a language easily understood by end‑users and market surveillance authorities. So, on our products, on the frame you will now find the following: SWISS ONE - OX29 0TA, UK


Lens markings

Lens markings include :

The scale number for filtering lenses, the manufacturer’s name (logo to identify the manufacturer).

Optical class numbers

  • 1Continuous work
  • 2Intermittent work
  • 3Occasional work, but must not be worn continuously

Use symbols

  • 8Short circuit electric arc
  • 9Molten metal and hot solids.

Filter type

  • 2UV filter
  • 2CUV filter with good color perception
  • 4Infrared filter
  • 5Sunglare filter
  • 6Sunglare filter with IR specification

Shade number

  • 1.2Clear or amber (yellow)/Vision+
  • 1.4Blueblocker (orange or light brown)
  • 1.7Indoor Outdoor (IO)/Blue Blocker
  • 2Orange 550NM / UV
  • 2.5Bronze or smoke
  • 3.1Red mirror, smoke or Polarized

Warning

  • FMaximum protection for glasses
  • BMaximum protection for goggles
  • AMaximum protection for face shields

If the S, F, B and A symbols do not apply to both the lens and frame, then the lowest level must be assigned to the protective eyewear.
