Warning of fake certificates for filtering half masks (types FFP1, FFP2, FFP3)

Involved certification bodies such as ECM, Celab and ISET

We would like to inform you about fakes of certificates for filtering half masks currently available on the market and call for caution. By using these fake certificates, a wide variety of providers are currently trying to place their filtering half masks on the European market, which are not in accordance with EU regulations.

In this customer information, we refer to the German notification published on 9 April 2020 at https://www.sifa-sibe.de with the following information:

  • Every day, European trade associations would receive new examples from different organisations who issue alleged “CE certificates”. The notification shows an example of the Italian certification body ECM - Ente Certificazione Macchine (EU No. 1282).

  • ECM is not authorized to test PPE - personal protective equipment. Among other things, ECM may only test medical devices. However, the certificates feign “that the named products comply with the EN 149 standard for filtering half masks tested in accordance with the European PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and would have been declared compliant.”

  • The ESF - European Safety Federation - also warns of falsifications. According to their available information of the Italian association Assosistema, the national Italian accreditation body ACCREDIA notified by the Italian government has already sent a letter to all approved certification bodies in Italy, in agreement with the Italian Ministry of Industry. Among other things, the letter would clarify the misleading and in case of a repeating the involved certification bodies such as ECM, Celab and ISET would have to expect their accreditation to be withdrawn.

Please pay close attention on your documents because it is stated that “anyone who sells the products as PPE to their customers against better knowledge is on the one hand punishable and also on the other liable for damages.”

In the attachment, you will find the notified bodies that are authorized to issue certificates for PPE.

We at HUM generally ensure that our goods have all necessary and valid certificates.

Covid-19 - Cohesion and good cooperation are first priority at HUM!

Measures to contain the new coronavirus are being intensified worldwide and of course HUM also ensures that its own employees and their families are protected.

We will continue to do our best for you! In order to be fully operational and to be there for you as usual, our team has been available to you either from our home office or from our location since March.

We would like to inform you about the following:

  • Due to the high order intake, there may be delays in processing your inquiries and orders. Of course we are there for you and will get back to you the next day at the latest!

  • The current situation can also lead to delays in the delivery of your orders, which in turn makes it difficult for us to make statements about delivery dates or the ability to deliver. Here, too, we do our best for you!

  • Changed delivery conditions of the shippers also lead to delays. We have therefore included an additional note on current delivery conditions of the parcel services and shippers in the attachment to your order confirmation.

We are convinced that we will tackle this time together, because cohesion and good cooperation are our top priority! We try to guarantee this at all times in our internal processes and in our relationships with our customers and partners - for 25 years now!

Arab Health 2020

HUM participated in the Arab Health in Dubai again this year and would like to thank all visitors, customers and business partners for another successful participation. The Arab Health is the leading trade fair for health and medicine in the MENA region. It was new this year that the exhibitors and halls were sorted according to product groups and no longer according to countries. For visitors, this meant international diversity within the exhibition halls and targeted visits to eight categories.

As an international operating company, the Arab Health made it possible for us to strengthen existing contacts and establish new business relationships with partners from all over the world. With more than 106,900 visitors, it was again confirmed that this trade fair in the Middle East is one of the most important medical technology events. A professional exchange and feedback enables and encourages HUM to continue to provide optimal solutions for our customers. For questions or requests you can reach us as usual under the following contact opportunities.

Volunteer Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer

Volunteer Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer

Personal Exchange & Support by HUM and the upcoming Open Day of the Fire Brigade

A volunteer fire service needs support, because volunteering requires a lot of time and financial resources to save lives and prevent damage in case of emergency.

Insights into Projects & Ideas as well as Local Support by HUM
Through a renewed personal exchange of the Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer with our Managing Director Dietmar Uhlenbruch, we were already able to gain insights into various projects in June of last year, such as the now completed new Fire Brigade Equipment House. The Fire Brigade also presented own ideas, which we would like to continue to support, so that equipment can be supplemented and the best possible service of our regional fire brigade is ensured.

Open Day of the Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer
The Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer invites all interested citizens to an open house on September 7, 2019 to present the new equipment house and to allow a visit. So we would like to draw attention again to the last year's visit of the Fire Brigade at HUM.

Here you will find some impressions of the new Fire Brigade Equipment House. The Open Day of the Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer takes place on 07. September 2019 from 11am to 11pm. You will find the fire station in the Wittekindstr. 28 a, 44536 Lünen-Brambauer.

We at HUM GmbH continue to look forward to a great and constructive exchange with the team from the Fire Brigade Lünen-Brambauer in order to understand in the future how we can support local partners as well as rescue services in the best possible way.

RETTmobil 2019

On May 15, the 19th edition of the RETTmobil opened its doors in bright sunshine in Fulda for three days. The European leading trade fair for rescue and mobility has once again demonstrated why it is the favoured industry meeting place for all products and services related to preclinical emergency medicine.

For the first time, HUM attended the many product inquiries and feedback discussions of customers and interested parties from the professional and voluntary rescue services at two booths. Both stands were highly frequented thanks to the truly big surprise from the AEROcase range (see photo), which became a magnet for many curious trade fair visitors, and our medical devices and emergency and transport cases used in almost all areas of rescue. Our trade fair team was able to generate a great feedback and new insights thanks to the lively exchange with trade visitors from the emergency medical services sector.

HUM therefore once again thanks all visitors, customers and partner companies who have contributed to making the RETTmobil again in 2019 a very successful trade fair. Your HUM team is already looking forward to welcome you at our booth next year!

Berlin Emergency Medical Services Symposium 2018

HUM participated for the first time as an exhibitor at the Berlin Emergency Medical Services Symposium (Berliner Rettungsdienstsymposium) from 16 to 17 November 2018 and exhibited at the venue in Charité Campus Virchow Klinikum its product range optimised for rescue services, including AEROcase® EMS+ emergency bags and backpacks. The conversations at the HUM booth and the highly interesting and informative topics were very aptly chosen from the practice for the practice. Current topics such as very special missions, primary care for accident victims, practical examples of children's emergencies from the preclinical stage and much more were dealt with. For us as a medical technology company, this gave us the opportunity to get in direct contact with users and receive their feedback. HUM would like to thank all visitors and speakers for their interest in our products and the interesting exchange!

Review of the RETTmobil 2018

RETTmobil 2018

From May 16 to 18, the 18th edition of RETTmobil , the leading European show for rescue and mobility, took place in Fulda. Thanks to a large number of new product releases, the HUM booth was heavily frequented from morning to evening and our trade fair team was delighted to receive interesting and demanding inquiries from trade visitors that either work in the medical business as volunteers or as professionals. The HUM team would like to thank all persons and partner companies who made our extremely successful trade fair appearance possible. We hope to continue to have the right feel for the product balance between form and function as well as quality and price.

Regarding the new releases, the two highlights on our stand certainly were the completely redesigned AEROcase® ProEMS+ emergency and transport cases and the EASY Click ampoule rail system. Visitors at our booth were able to put the configuration options of the AEROcase® EMS+ series modular system on a magnetic wall, thus drawing conclusions about the perfect interaction of our products with their own application profile.

The new EASY Click ampoule rail system for ampoules and vials convinced visitors with its wide functionality: The safe hold of the ampoules in combination with easy adjustability, the smooth withdrawal and equipping of the clips and the integration of the system from a stationary or mobile medication cabinet to the ampoule case aroused a very positive response among the professional rescuers.
