Personal Protective Equipment

Our laboratories analyse and certify items such as, Footwear, Gloves, Clothing and Impact Protection Devices relying on an extensive range of physico-mechanical and chemical tests conducted to ensure compliance of the products to applicable standards demanded by the market.
We certify protective equipment for the Firefighters, for the High Visibility sector and the Motorcycle world.
EQS is the ideal technological partner for testing the quality of products designed for Mountain and Outdoor wear and generally products of the textile, clothing and leather industry.

Industrial Machines

Machines and their safety components must meet the essential requirements for the purposes of the health and safety of their operator, listed in Annex I of the Machine Directive. For certifying the conformity of machines and safety components to the provisions of the directive, the manufacturer or his authorised representative established within the European Community, shall prepare for each machine or for each safety component, a declaration of conformity, also, for machines only, must affix the CE marking. EQS prepares the Technical File for the CE marking and prepares the documentation for the certification of machines in Annex IV.

General Product Safety

This Directive applies in the absence of specific European regulations, governing the safety of certain categories of products or if specific regulations (sectoral) are insufficient. Furthermore, it is to be applied without prejudice to Directive 85/374/EEC concerning liability for defective products.
General safety requirement
The Directive imposes a general safety requirement on any product put on the market for consumers or likely to be used by them, including all products that provide a service. Second-hand products that have antique value or those that need to be repaired are not subject to this requirement.
A safe product is one which poses no threat or only a reduced threat in accordance with the nature of its use and which is acceptable in view of maintaining a high level of protection for the health and safety of persons.


The purpose of the EQSgreen Mark is to deal the issues concerning sustainable development of the customers activities from an environmental point of view . It’s issued on the basis of EQSgreen General Regulation to all those products and services for which there is a specific protocol.
