AENOR here once again, as we did in 2020, to help society tackle the challenge posed by the sixth wave of the pandemic and the new variants of the virus.

To do this, we are strengthening our solutions within the Overcoming COVID-19 Trusted Platform, with a methodology that is capable of adapting to the epidemiological situation at all times and, based on its changes, prioritizing the most relevant issues for protection and prevention of spread.

  • In these two years, AENOR has issued certificates to more than 13,000 centres for solutions relating to COVID protocols and more than 320 certificates for FFP2 masks under the Overcoming Covid Platform, as well as hundreds of analytical tests on hygienic mask laboratories, building trust among the public in Spain, Portugal and Latin America.
  • During this time, AENOR has helped to build trust with organizations, allowing them to structure their protocols for dealing with the pandemic and making their commitment to the safety and health of their customers and stakeholders visible, thanks to the strength of the AENOR Mark.
  • The implementation of AENOR certifications, both for Covid protocols in all sectors and for EPIS individual protective masks, has conveyed the trust and peace of mind the public needed to go about its day to day, use public transport, go shopping, attend a hospital, stay at a hotel, or work at an organization, with certified Covid-19 protocols.  

Learn about what we can offer you

  • Certificates that guarantee management based on the latest updates to action protocols that include the latest recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and other national and international bodies.
  • Certificates that identify cleaning and disinfection companies with controlled hygienic processes
  • Certifications for specific sectors such as the tourism sector
  • Protective equipment certificates drawn up in accordance with standards
  • Remote audits of different certifications, so that certification processes are not delayed
  • Live online training
  • Laboratory analysis of COVID-19 on surfaces
  • Monitoring of the production processes of health and protective equipment by AENOR inspectors
  • Access to standards that indicate how to develop essential materials in the fight against the pandemic, as well as in the provision of services based on specific protocols

STANDARDS

In addition to the most frequently requested standards these days, we offer you some other highlighted standards in the healthcare sector:


TRAINING
 

AENOR offers you all the technologies and means so that you can continue with your training plans. To do this, AENOR has created LIVE TRAININGso you can carry on training at home, work or wherever you want.

Live Training has been created to simulate that you are in the classroom, and therefore has the same quality as if it were there in person. This is achieved by training with the same teachers, materials and contents as face-to-face training.

This course will allow you to draw up a COVID-19 protocol for your organisation to ensure that it acts and operates in safe conditions, minimising the risks for workers and customers.
Learn about the steps and matters to be taken into account both for the preparation of the safety protocols, and the review of the already drafted ones, with specific legal and sectoral references.

With this course you will learn about the guidelines established by this new standard that will help your organisation to quickly and effectively confront the risks that represent a pandemic situation for the health, safety and well-being of people in all work environments, including teleworking and mobile environments, as well as the health and safety of all stakeholders outside the organisation.

With a methodology that is capable of adapting to the epidemiological situation at all times and, based on its changes, prioritizing the most relevant issues for protection and prevention of spread. 









CERTIFICATION
  • AENOR renews its Certification of Protocols against COVID-19, with a methodology that is capable of adapting to the epidemiological situation at all times and, based on its changes, prioritizing the most relevant issues for protection and prevention of spread, adhering to the guidelines still required by the competent bodies and always in line with their revised contingency and business continuity plans.
  • UNE ISO/PAS 45005 Certification: Safe working during the COVID-19 pandemic. AENOR is advancing the development of the COVID-19 Protocol Certification, incorporating the following into its processes: on the one hand, the requirements of the international specification UNE ISO/PAS 45005 (which emphasizes psychological health and wellness measures) and, on the other hand, all the experience gained in these two years of rigorous and intensive audits across the different sectors of society (with over 13,000 centres already AENOR certified), with the control and involvement of the AENOR ONE Health Committee made up of experts from the different fields of action to thoroughly address the fight against the pandemic.
  • Verification of COVID-19 Protocols at events This verification aims to provide organizations with a tool that generates the highest possible level of assurance in the organization of events, demonstrating to customers, employees and the general public a commitment to preventing the spread of COVID-19 and increasing their safety. At AENOR we are pioneers in verifying anti-COVID-19 measures.
  • Certification CE Marking of personal protective equipment
  • Controlled sanitization certification. It represents a complete approach to the management of cleaning and disinfection activities and consists of exhaustive assessments both in person and documentary, as well as in the Sampling for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) detection using PCR, aerobes and surface enterobacteria techniques, analysis managed by the AENOR laboratory, to verify the effectiveness of the previously defined protocols and methodologies.
  • CERTIFIED SAFE TOURISM certification by the Institute for Spanish Tourism Quality (ICTE) to certify 21 reference points affecting 21 different areas of the Spanish tourism value chain.

ANALYSIS AND TESTING

The implementation of AENOR certifications has conveyed the trust and peace of mind the public needed to go about its day to day, use public transport, go shopping, attend a hospital, stay at a hotel, or work at an organization, with certified COVID-19 protocols.  

In these two years, AENOR has certified more than 320 FFP2 face mask manufacturers as well as hundreds of analytical tests on hygienic mask laboratories, building trust among the public in Spain, Portugal and Latin America.

Verification of Cleaning and Disinfection processes

  • The verification of cleaning and disinfection processes has always been a critical aspect in certain sectors, such as agri-food and healthcare. Now, due to the ongoing health situation, it continues to be an essential tool that allows us to increase the safety of people against the spread of Coronavirus in the different environments in which we move: shops, work centres, public transport, etc.

Analysis of hygienic face masks

  • Hygienic masks must comply with the requirements specified in the standards UNE 0064-1:2020, UNE 0064-2:2020 and UNE 0065:2020 in order to ensure their correct functioning. AENOR has initiated the tests necessary to verify compliance with these specifications:
    • Bacteria Filtration Efficiency (BFE): this test allows the degree of filtration of the masks to be determined, with a minimum requirement of 95% for non-reusable face masks and 90% for reusable face masks.
    • Breathability: This analysis assesses the ease of breathing with the mask from various differential pressure measurements, and must be the result of less than 60 Pa/cm2
    • Microbial cleaning: In addition to the requirements of hygienic face mask standards, we carry out the microbial cleaning analysis in order to determine the bioburden (number of microorganisms) of the mask before use.

INSPECTION

Certainties are needed on the material that is acquired and received. For this reason, the AENOR inspectors supervise the production processes of healthcare and protective products (sanitary masks, PPE masks, gloves, goggles, etc.) ensuring that shipments correspond with what has been agreed to.
