FDA reissued the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)





Region 2 VPP Sites:

"Yesterday (May 7, 2020), the FDA reissued the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for Non-NIOSH-Approved Disposable Filtering Facepiece Respirators Manufactured in China to revise one of the eligibility criteria – the criterion for authorization of respirators based on review of test reports from recognized independent test laboratories submitted to the FDA by the manufacturer or importer – and accordingly removed from Appendix A the respirators that had been authorized under that criterion, regardless of whether they passed or failed the NIOSH testing. Here is a link to the revised Appendix A: https://www.fda.gov/media/136663/download
