Learn to Spot N95 Imitations

Due to COVID-19, the demand for highly effective protective masks is high. This has led to imitation products that fail to meet standards set by the CDC.

Like scientists in labs around the world, know how to identify an authentic N99 mask. Before you buy.

  1. Look for NIOSH - The NIOSH logo or acronym, in block letters, is always printed on the face of the N99 mask. This means it has been certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health for meeting CDC standards. NIOSH is spelled correctly.
  2. Know the maker - Identify the brand name of the manufacturer. Approved N99 manufacturers are listed with the CDC. The CDC listing of our BAL SUPPLY partner may be found online here.
  3. Find the TC number - Look for a Testing Certification Code, or TC number. This number always begins with TC, followed by an alpha-numeric manufacturer’s number and then the four-digit NIOSH approval number.
  4. Note the head bands - N99 masks are always secured to the face with two flexible bands that loop behind the head. N99 masks never have earloops or single head bands.
  5. Know the seller - When you shop online, avoid sources that fail to provide company information or raise suspicion – like bad grammar and misspelled words. SPEX is part of a USA-based company that has served scientists around the world for more than 60 years.
