PPE’s by Indian Navy clears INMAS certification

The Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS), Delhi tasked with the testing and certification of PPE, has tested the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) designed and produced by the Indian Navy.

Key Points:

  • The PPEs have been certified for mass production and to be used in clinical COVID situations.
  • The scarcity of PPE during the current COVID-19 pandemic is of grave concern since, due to it, the availability and well-being of the Healthcare Workforce are in danger, in addition to affecting their security and morale.
  • The standards for the PPE for testing are set by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
  • The design and production of PPE have been done by the collaborative effort of a team formed by the Naval Dockyard Mumbai and Innovation Cell, Institute of Naval Medicine, Mumbai.
  • The PPE passed the minimum mandate of 3/6 and the ISO 16603 standard of the Government of India with a 6/6 Synthetic blood penetration resistance test pressure, which makes it certifiable for mass production and use in clinical COVID situations.
  • The PPEs developed by the Indian Navy are cost-effective in design, innovative, and simple, which make it feasible for manufacturing by basic gown facilities.
  • The fabric that has been used in the PPE gives the PPE its 'breathability' and resistance to penetration, making it both safe and comfortable for the user.
  • Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Allied Sciences (INMAS) is a laboratory under the Defence Research and Development Organization.
