The new Regulation has a transition period of two years. During this period, all stakeholders can prepare for the coming changes. After this transition period, starting from April 21, 2018, new PPE will be only EU type-examined in accordance with the new Regulation EU 2016/425. However, manufacturers are still able to place new products that have been EC type-examined according to the PPE Directive 89/686/EEC on the market until April 20, 2019. This also applies to products approved in the transition period.

Certificates without an expiration date shall remain valid for a period of seven years after the new PPE Regulation came into force so until April 20, 2023. This means that from April 20, 2023 only PPE can be sold which are based on the PPE Regulation 2016/425.
