How to start PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Production

Frontline workers are at risk when fighting #COVID19. To protect them, more Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) like masks, gloves and gowns are needed. How can the textile sector switch productions to produce more PPEs? How to source raw materials or what methods should be used? To answer the questions on going beyond the norm, IFC brought together some global experts to share practical and technical knowledge on switching production.







Attached is a selection of technical documents on personal protective equipment that IFC has collected from publicly available sources (e.g. official WHO requirements) and from companies which have started PPE production during the COVID-19 crisis. We are sharing this information with the sole purpose of giving an example of possibly relevant technical information only. IFC does not assume or accept any responsibility for the accuracy, fitness for purpose or completeness of the information provided in these documents.
