CE Marking

CE The CE mark indicates that the product meets all essential requirements of the
EC Directive applied to the product. It is mandatory for all products sold in EU.
DAILOVE cold-protection gloves are certified based on the EN standard and the CE mark is attached to all products.


All individual protection equipments are ranged in 3 categories, according to the covered risks.

ⅠProtective gloves against minimal risks

EN 420:2003 + A1:2009
General requirements for protective gloves

◯Neutral pH (between 3.5 and 9)
◯Innocuousness (neither the construction of the glove, nor the materials used, nor any degradation consequent on the normal use of the glove should be in any way
harmful to the health or hygiene of the wearer).
◯Specific for leather gloves: Chrome Ⅵ content
◯Specific for natural rubber gloves: Extractable protein content

ⅡProtective gloves against intermediate risks

Conform to the european standard EN420:2003 + performance level which shows how a glove has performed in a specific test for the
mechanical risks accordingly to the EN 388:2003. and by which the results of that testing may be graded. Some gloves can also comply
with specific applications like cold (EN511:2006), contact heat under 100℃ (EN407:2004).
The performance levels are classed in a increasing order, level 0 being the less performing one. These levels are always indicated in the
same order next to the pictgram representing the standard.

ⅢGloves for protection against irreversible risks

Protective gloves against chemicals and micro-organisms
Gloves conform to the European standard EN420:2003 and having obtained a performance level which shows how a glove has
performed in a specific test for specific applications like heat contact over 100℃ (EN407:2004) and chemical risks (EN374-1:2015).

Ⅰ Self-certification from the manufacturer
Ⅱ EC type examination from a notified body
Ⅲ EC type examination from a notified body
