FR Recognition Number 6-425
ASTM F2100-19 Standard Specification for Performance of Materials Used in Medical Face Masks
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This specification covers testing and requirements for materials used in the construction of medical face masks that are used in providing healthcare services such as surgery and patient care.

1.2 This specification provides for the classification of medical face mask material performance. Medical face mask material performance is based on testing for bacterial filtration efficiency, differential pressure, sub-micron particulate filtration efficiency, resistance to penetration by synthetic blood, and flammability.

1.3 This specification does not address all aspects of medical face mask design and performance. This specification does not specifically evaluate the effectiveness of medical face mask designs as related to the barrier and breathability properties. This specification does not apply to regulated respiratory protection, which may be necessary for some healthcare services.

Extent of Recognition
Complete standard
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ASTM F2100-11 (Reapproved 2018) [Rec# 6-254] will be superseded by recognition of ASTM F2100-19 [Rec# 6-425]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 6-254] until December 27, 2020. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 6-254] will not be accepted.
