N95/KN95/FFP2 Respirators Information
2020-03-20

N95/KN95/FFP2 respirators are recommended by World Health Organization for reducing the spread of Coronavirus.
They are not exactly the same, but equivalent standard. (N95 is a USA standard, KN95 is a Chinese standard, FFP2 is a European standard).

Filtering facepiece respirators (FFR), which are sometimes called disposable respirators, are subject to various regulatory standards around the world. These standards specify certain required physical properties and performance characteristics in order for respirators to claim compliance with the particular standard. During pandemic or emergency situations, health authorities often reference these standards when making respirator recommendations, stating, for example, that certain populations should use an “N95, KN95, FFP2, or equivalent” respirator.

* N95 (United States NIOSH-42CFR84 standard)
* KN95 (China GB2626-2006 standard)
* FFP2 (Europe EN 149-2001 standard)

Based on relevant professional organizations comparison and according to the performance requirements specified in the relevant standards, confirmed in the qualification test, it can be proven that the functions of the respirators meeting the relevant standards are very similar.
Based on this comparison, it is reasonable to consider Chinese KN95, European FFP2 FFRs as equivalent to US NIOSH N95 respirators, for filtering non-oil-based particles such as those resulting from wildfires, PM 2.5 air pollution, volcanic eruptions, or bioaerosols (e.g. viruses).
