Vias institute as a partner for the quality control of face masks

Vias institute has years of experience in calibrating, examining and homologating various materials such as alcohol tests or safety helmets. As of 2020, Vias institute is also authorized by the Federal Public Service to test the quality of face masks.

Which face masks can we test?

Vias institute can deliver an Alternative Test Protocol certificate for FFP2 masks. In the near future, we will also be able to test other types of face masks such as surgical masks and cloth face masks.

The ATP certificate is, however, only valid in Belgium and is not a CE-certificate. Below, you can find an overview of which tests are applicable.
