How do I report personal protective equipment (PPE) that I suspect to be unsafe?

Information about reporting unsafe PPE

Our Trading Standards Team has received reports of the sale of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as face masks and hand sanitiser, which may not be safe. They will investigate complaints and will work with the Office for Product Safety to ensure all products put on the market are safe. If you suspect that any items of PPE are unsafe, then please report it on the Public Protection Partnership website.
