As of today, wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory in some areas – such as “public transport” and grocery stores. KN95 masks also in circulation – contrary to original reports – are also approved under certain conditions. However, according to the Ministry of Health, these products should only be used if they have been demonstrably tested in Europe.

The KN95 standard label states that these masks are of similar quality to European FFP2 masks. However, they can only be used after they have been tested in Europe, according to the Ministry of Health. In the private sector (commerce and public transport), masks with the KN95 imprint are also used. To be confident of equivalent filtration or protection performance, consumers should make sure masks have at least two of the following characteristics: explicit designation as FFP2 masks, CE marking, EN marking or a four-digit number identifying the certifying test institute.

In the social and healthcare sector, KN95 masks may only be used if they are CPA certified. Due to a national decree, this is possible, provided that the masks have been tested and certified in Austria. “This means that there is no need to have any concerns here. Thus, since the beginning of the pandemic, people in this particularly vulnerable area can rely on the fact that these are safe masks that correspond to the filtering performance and protection of an FFP2 mask,” the department said.
