CE certifications


As of 2003, European standard 13595-1/2/3/4 was created for motorcycle suits, jackets and trousers, divided into four levels to define their degree of protection. However, it was never imposed on producers on a mandatory basis, as there was no provision for checks on the items of clothing by the bodies responsible for regulatory control. The difficulty in complying with what the standard also required in order to obtain certification for the first level, together with the lack of a law that obliged or constrained the manufacturer to market only certified products, and the costs that this involved, led companies to choose to put on the market products not approved for at least a decade.


Category 1:
Fully approved as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).

Category 2:
Equipped with homologated protections. Technical clothing from category 2 is the most popular ever. If you enter a specialist shop, at least 90% of the garments available are almost certainly from the category 2. Exceptions could be boots and back protectors, as they are the "easiest" to certify.


Inside the PPE 686 containing all the homologation standards of products that are sold for protective purposes as PPE, the 13594:2013 is created, a standard that identifies in levels 1 and 2, the degree of protection of a motorcycle glove. In France, the first European country already known as a promoter of standards for the protection of motorcycle clothing, at the same time there is talk of a new law for the highway code that requires the use of only certified gloves while driving.
In 2015, the previous regulation, which facilitates the approval process for gloves, is revised and one year after it becomes law.

THE STANDARD prEN 17092:2017

We start talking about a new simplified standard that will replace the number 13595 for the certification of all motorcycle clothing. Standard prEN 17092:2017 as described in the title, is a pre-standard that comes into force on April 21, 2018 but is applied one year later. This gives the producers one year in which to comply.
