XXX CE-marking of protective goggles for floorball use – 02.02.2007

There is now CE-marked protective goggles available for Floorball players. Although the use of protective eyewear is not mandatory in Floorball the International Floorball Federation recommends the use of eye protection.

The Swedish Floorball Federation started a project with the consumer authorities in Sweden in order to have CE-marked eye protection for Floorball use. SP (Swedish National Testing and Research Institute) in cooperation with the consumer authorities developed a CE criteria and a testing tool which in 2006 was approved by the Swedish authorities.
The idea with certification is to have eye protection for Floorball players, which are developed in order to guarantee the security of the players. Starting from the beginning of year 2007 the IFF has taken over the testing tool from the Swedish Floorball Federation and there is now CE-marked protective goggles specifically for Floorball use.
