Change in standards for first aid kits
From January 1st, 2022 we deliver our first aid products according to the new standards DIN 13157 and 13169. Is there anything for you to consider? No - the known article numbers remain valid - only the refill items will be adapted. Do you need to retrofit your first aid kits or boxes and cabinets?

Basically, the change of the DIN 13157 and DIN 13169 standards affects all our first aid kits that comply with the aforementioned standards as well as complete products, which contain these material fillings like e.g. whole first aid cases incl. filling.
The following items have been added:
- more extensive plaster assortment
- cleaning cloths
- medical face masks
From January 1st, 2022 we will completely change over to the new versions.
The transition period started on November 1st, 2021 and ends on April 30th, 2022. During this time, both the new and the old DIN are valid. From May 1st, 2022, the updated DIN will be considered "state of the art" and should then apply.
