Breathe Safety has been established in the Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) market for 15 years and is recognised as a customer focused market-leader. From this firm technical foundation, natural progression led us to establish an ISO 17025 UKAS accredited testing laboratory (No. 8856) specialising in RPE.

For a manufacturer, it can be a challenging and time-consuming process to launch a new product in the market, but one which can be made significantly easier by choosing a credible and service orientated partner. It is our assurance that as a UKAS accredited laboratory, control of manufacturers products and impartiality are key whilst testing.

The following professional services are available to clients wishing to bring a CE certified product to market:

  • CE Type Approval Testing
  • Pre-approval confidence testing for specific tests
  • Testing to suit bespoke client requirements and procedures
  • CE Technical File review and consultancy advice
  • CE Certification facilitation through our partner Notified Body
