    Warning

    Scams: Beware of scams involving medical products. The risk of payment fraud and delivery of non-compliant and/or inferior products is high at this time.

    Export Bans: Some countries, including Vietnam, enforce export bans on certain products. Export bans enforced after you have placed an order can result in a total loss – or severe delay.

    Before you order

    Here are our recommendations for importers planning to order medical products.

    Prices

    It’s currently a seller’s market for many medical products, with more demand than supply. Expect higher unit prices for more products.

    MOQ

    The Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ) requirements are also higher than normal. Some suppliers don’t accept orders valued less than USD 100,000.

    Payment Terms

    Some suppliers may insist on a 100% pre-payment, before starting production. We still advise that you only pay a 30% deposit and 70% balance after quality inspection and lab testing – or, pay by Letter of Credit.

    Product Compliance

    Medical devices and equipment are regulated in the United States and the European Union. Such regulations are there for a reason – to ensure that the product is not worthless (which is a risk) – and will not go away due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. You must request and verify test reports and other compliance documents (e.g. DoC) before placing an order.

    Face Mask Buyer’s Guide

    Face masks can either be considered as personal protective equipment, when they mainly protect the wearer, medical masks, when they mainly protect the patient, or both, when they are designed to protect both the wearer and the patient in a medical environment.

    Note that the US, EU, China, and other countries, classify masks also according to filtration capability.

    FFP1 Face Masks (EU)

    The standard EN 149 sets up requirements and standards for the manufacturing and marketing of respiratory protective devices in the EU. This standard defines the respirators as filtering facepieces and classifies them into three categories: FFP1, FFP2, FFP3, based on the particle-filtering efficiency of the masks.

    The higher the number is, the more protective a mask can be to the users in terms of its particle-filtering efficiency. Note that the standard is harmonized under the PPE Directive.

    FFP1 masks have the weakest efficacy in particle filtration, compared to FFP2 and FFP3. FFP1 masks are generally used as dust-proof masks, in particular dust that has bigger diameters from coal, silica, iron ore, zinc, aluminum, and cement. FFP1 masks are suitable to be used for the purpose of DIY jobs, home renovations, cleaning, and drilling.

    For FFP1 type masks, filtration ability is supposed to be at least 80% while leakage is supposed to not exceed 22%.

    FFP1 masks are often distinguished by yellow elastic bands.

    FFP2 Face Masks (EU)

    FFP2 masks’ particle filtration capability is stronger than FFP1 masks but not as effective as FFP3 masks. FFP2 masks shall provide a minimum of 94% filtration rate and a maximum of 8% leakage to the inside.

    FFP2 masks are effective against particles like cotton dust, granite dust, hay, lead dust, and fume and can block off fine particles from influenza viruses such as avian influenza, SARS, pneumonic plague and tuberculosis.

    Some FFP2 masks are equipped with one or more valves, of which the function is to adjust the temperature inside the masks and prevent overheating of the filter elements.

    FFP2 masks are often distinguished by white or blue elastic bands.

    FFP3 Face Masks (EU)

    FFP3 masks have the strongest capacities in particle filtration compared to FFP1 and FFP2 masks.

    FFP3 masks can filter at least 99% particles of which the diameter is smaller than 0.001 microns, with the inward leakage being a maximum of 2%. FFP3 masks are able to block very fine particles such as asbestos and ceramics.

    This kind of mask is suitable to be used for medical, pharmaceutical and chemical purposes. However, given the excellent capacity in filtering particles, users might find themselves hard to breathe when wearing FFP3 masks. Users with cardiac or respiratory issues should carefully choose the right kind of FFP3 masks.

    FFP3 masks are often distinguished by red elastic bands.

    N95 Face Masks (USA)

    The American National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) classified the respirators into N, R and P series and 3 rating systems, 95, 99 and 100 in 42 CFR Part 84.

    The degree of filtration ability is indicated by progressive numbers, each of which represents the filtration ability in percentage. N-series masks are not able to filter particles with oil, R-series masks are able to block off particles that contain oil, effective for at most 8 hours, P-series masks are oil-proof. The bigger the number is, the more effective it is in capturing and filtering particles and providing a higher level of protection to the users.

    The filtration capability of N95 masks is 1% superior to FFP2 masks, with a minimum of 95% filtration rate of particles larger than 0.3 microns in diameter.

    N95 masks can filter particles like coal, iron ore, flour, metal, wood and pollen, and other non-oil based liquids and are the most well-known and popular models among the public, for its ability in protecting the users against flu, swine flu, avian flu transmission, and air pollution.

    N99 Face Masks (USA)

    N99 filters up to 99% of the particles that are larger than 0.3 microns in diameter, such as asbestos, bacteria, copier toner. N99 masks are made denser than N95 in order to trap down more particles, which as a result makes the N99 more expensive and harder for the users to breathe when wearing it.

    Therefore, as for FFP3 masks, users must be cautious if they have cardiac or respiratory issues.

    N100 Face Masks (USA)

    N100 masks can filter up to 99.97% of the particles that are larger than 0.3 microns in diameter and therefore rank the highest in terms of particle filtration efficacy among the N-series masks.

    N100 masks’ excellent particle filtration capacity makes them suitable to be worn in the fields of chemical engineering, pharmaceutical, constructional or venues where hazardous gases or particles spread, such as grinding, sanding, mineral processing and other activities.

    N100 masks are able to prevent the inhaling of substances like lead, cadmium, or arsenic, and protect the users from airborne hazards like avian flu, swine flu, and other contagious diseases.

    KN90 Face Masks (China)

    China has set up its national standards for respirators, codified in GB2626, enacted by the State Administration of Quality Supervision of China, which specifies the requirements for material, structure, appearance, performance, filtration efficiency and labeling for respirators.

    The classification system is similar to the American standard, featuring KN-series and KP-series, followed by number 90, 95 and 100. KN-series masks are not able to filter particles with oil while KP-series masks are oil-proof. The higher the number is, the more capable a mask in filtering particles.

    KN-series masks are proven to be effective in blocking particles of which the diameter is less than 5 microns. The filtration rate of KN90 masks is at least 90%.

    KN95 Face Masks (China)

    KN95 masks can at least filter 95% particles for the users and are among the most popular and well-known among the public for using them to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses, or air pollution.

    KN100 Face Masks (China)

    KN100 masks are supposed to filter at least 99.97% of particles. As usual, this high filtration ability might be problematic for users who have cardiac or respiratory issues.

    Surgical Masks (3-Ply/4-Ply/5-Ply)

    Surgical masks were originally designed to protect doctors and patients from bacteria and viruses that could be transmitted through droplets and fluids. Now, surgical masks have stretched their applications and are extensively used for various purposes, protecting the users from inhaling dust, pollen and other types of particles.

    Typically, there are 3-ply, 4-ply and 5-ply surgical masks available in the market. The general structure of a 3-ply includes an outer layer to repel fluids, a middle layer to filter bacteria, and an inner layer that shall mainly absorb fluids.

    4-ply and 5-ply masks have extra layers to offer extra protection.

    United States

    US FDA regulation 21 CFR Section 878.4040 categorizes surgical masks as Class II medical devices and provides regulatory standards for them.

    Two key standards to consider when dealing with FDA compliance are ASTM F2100, which specifies how to test bacterial filtration efficiency, and ASTM F1215, which indicates how to evaluate particle filtration efficiency.

    Based on the results of these tests, a compliant mask has an efficiency level of 1, 2, or 3.

    Level 1 masks filter out 95% or more of bacteria and sub-micron particulates, while level 2 or 3 masks remove at least 98%.

    European Union

    Surgical masks must comply with the requirements set out in the EU’s Medical Devices Directive, including the harmonized standard EN 14683, which is similar to the ASTM standards mentioned above.

    Under standard EN 14683, a mask receives a rating of Type I, Type II, or Type IIR according to its effectiveness blocking bacteria and sub-micron particulates.

    Whereas Type I masks need only filter out at least 95%, Type II and Type IIR masks must filter out 98% or more.

    China

    China established the standard for surgical masks under the resolution YY0469, which requires surgical masks to filter at least 95% of particles.
