The new EN ISO 374:2016 (EN)
Summary of key changes
Standard for protective gloves against dangerous chemicals and microorganisms
A new standard to reflect industry changes
The European standard for gloves intended to protect against chemicals and microorganisms has been revised and updated. The new standard was published in 2017 and supersedes EN374-1:2003.
For the consumer, the change will only be seen as a new label on products. Note that it is still important to consult the manufacturer regarding the application of the gloves. A risk assessment of the workplace activity must
always be carried out, taking specific working conditions into account in order to identify the exact protection requirements.
