Look out for fake overalls

The MSA have reported overalls being marketed as supposedly CIK homologated, when in reality they are not and the CIK homologation details that they are claiming belong to a different – legitimate – company. The particular overalls in this case originate from Pakistan and are apparently advertised through social media etc., as well as their own website.

Note that this doesn’t apply to all overalls originating in Pakistan, as there are other companies carrying legitimate CIK homologations. Please take care when purchasing overalls, particularly online and ensure that you check the homologation labelling. If you notice anything that looks untoward or that you don’t recognise then it is worth looking a bit further. The current list of CIK-homologated overalls can be downloaded from the CIK website by clicking here. Under current regulations any CIKhomologated overalls produced from 1997 onwards are permitted, however with effect from 1 January 2016, this changes to only the more recent ‘No. 2001-1’ or ‘No. 2013-1’ CIK standards being accepted, either level 1 or 2. Remember that expiry dates detailed on the homologation label are not relevant for MSA events.
