Check out our explanatory video about EN 407 changes


The EN 407 standard has been revised recently.

The main reason for the revision is the inclusion of thermal protection articles for private use (oven gloves, potholders, etc) in the new PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425

=> The performance levels remain unchanged !

The major change  is the integration of a new pictogram:

  • For gloves resistant to flame : NO CHANGE
  • For gloves NOT resistant to flame : NEW PICTOGRAM

Some changes on tests & requirements (see details on the video)

The UE certificates obtained with the former EN 407 remain valid.
