General Questions Regarding CDC & NIOSH

Q: Do filtering face-piece respirators (FFRs) not approved by the National Institutes of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), provide the same protection as NIOSH-approved respirators?

A:  As mentioned in CDC's strategies for optimizing respirator supply, certain other countries approve respirators according to these standards. These devices are evaluated using methods similar to those used by NIOSH and are still expected to provide adequate protection for healthcare personnel, given shortages of FFRs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Under these circumstances, the FDA believes these devices may serve as suitable alternatives for personal respiratory protection during this period of shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the CDC’s National Personal Protective Technology Laboratory (NPPTL) has posted on its website Respirator Assessments to Support the COVID-19 Response.

NPPTL makes no representation as to the authenticity of the samples received and assessed. As part of its standard respirator approval process for NIOSH-approved respirators, NPPTL conducts a comprehensive quality assurance review of the quality process and manufacturing site.
