Testing of gloves
HANSECONTROL – A test program
Hansecontrol GmbH is a recognized German ISO-certified testing laboratory which tests all OX-ON gloves on a continuous basis for, for example, chemical content, performance, harmful content as well as how high the product quality is.
REACH - EU Directive on the use of chemicals
The EU REACH list (also called the candidate list) is a list of substances suspected of being harmful to humans, animals or the environment. The list is constantly changing and requires close monitoring. OX-ON does not intend to provide products containing chemicals in the REACH list.

OEKO-TEX - Trust in textiles
OEKO-TEX® is the world's leading health and environmental label for clothing and home textiles.
OEKO-TEX® is a voluntary labeling scheme controlled by the OEKO-TEX® Association which imposes restrictions on a wide range of substances.
Many gloves in OX-ON's wide range are certified with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. You can find them by using product filtering on the website.
SATRA - The glove certification
To approve and certify a glove, OX-ON uses the SATRA certification institute, designated by the EU. Here, the gloves are tested according to the various EN standards.
All OX-ON's gloves have a mark so you can see the EN standards with which the gloves comply. You can make sure your glove is tested by looking for the marks on the glove.
