- Regulation 3 of the European Communities (PPE) Regulations 1993set out what products are covered by the legislation. It was originally accepted that anchor devices for protection against falls from a height were systems placed on the market in conjunction with PPE for its connection to another, additional device. However this acceptance was subsequently questioned and the issue became confused.
- The European Commission has advised that class A, C and D anchor devices (see Classes in EN 795:1997) should not be classed as PPE. This means that these products will not need to meet the requirements of the European Communities (PPE) Regulations 1993 and subsequent amendments.
- The information given here will be updated if the position changes.
