MANUFACTURER’S COMMITMENT ON ITS APPROACH TO SECURING ESP MASKS
The company SIMON & Cie, manufacturer of ESP (Écrans Stop Postillons) - Respiratory droplet stop screens/masks-, declares to have followed a process of design, manufacture and distribution of ESP masks aimed at meeting the general product safety directive (directive 2001/95 / EC of the European parliament and of the council of December 3, 2001) and article L. 111 -1 of the consumer code (relative to consumer information).
This process involved:
Assessing the needs of end users,
Developing a technical solution, the ESP,
Listing and evaluating possible risks linked to physical use of the products,
Eliminating or at minimum reducing residual risks,
Informing distributors and users via the user manual including a warning/advisory notice:
- Product objectives,
- Proper wear practices, use, cleaning and storage,
- Precautions to consider and potential side effects,
- Effective conduct in the event of a fire,
- Standards and regulations which the product does not meet,
- Standards and regulations which the product meets, in particular the REACH 1907/2006 regulation, the EN71 / 3 toy standard and the EU 10/2011 food contact regulation,
- Categories of personnel at risk.
- Informing distributors and users through labeling in accordance with Directive 2001/95 / EC...
In the absence of standards covering the product, SIMON & Cie performed the analysis and control of potential risks product use through a trial and error approach, which relied on a panel of users and thereafter conducting an analysis of their feedback. This approach made it possible to:
Reformulate the product with non-allergenic substances (elimination of redness seen in some cases of contact),
Reduce or even eliminate residual odors by replacing certain substances,
Obtain a product compatible with food contact as well as Reach regulations.
SIMON & Cie is committed to continuing these actions in order to secure the users of ESP products by keeping a register of complaints and sharing product monitoring/tracking with distributors.
