Exceeds European
standard EN 14683

ISO 13485 is the internationally recognized standard outlining the requirements for a comprehensive quality management system for the design and manufacture of medical devices.

The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority SAHPRA is tasked with regulating (monitoring, evaluating, investigating, inspecting and registering) all health products in South Africa.

European Standard EN 14683 specifies construction and performance requirements, and test methods for surgical masks.

Rethink Face Mask Filters that meet the requirements under this standard for Type I (≥ 95% BFE*) and Type II ( ≥ 98% BFE*) are available.

Environmental Sustainability

Community Health Workers in Africa are estimated to use more than 100 million surgical masks per year. That equates to nearly 275 tonnes of unrecyclable single-use plastic waste. This volume of PPE waste has a profound impact on our environment.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and contemplating such environmental challenges, the Stellenbosch Nanofiber Company in South Africa developed a reusable and more sustainable alternative.

Each Rethink Face Mask Filter is re-used 9 times, thereby eliminating 9 single-use masks, drastically reducing the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of. In the African context, up to 90 million single-use masks (nearly 250 tonnes) per year can be prevented from ending up in landfills and the ocean.
