Prescription Glasses FAQ's

What is the difference between certified and compliant safety glasses?


Compliant safety glasses are tested once to determine that they meet the requirements of a standard. There is no guarantee that future batches or products of the same type also comply to the standard.


Certified products by contrast, undergo initial assessment to compliance, are registered with an independent certifying body (e.g. SAI Global) and additional batch testing and assessment occurs to ensure the product continues to meet the needs specified in the standard. Buying a certified product guarantees:


  1. Ongoing compliance guaranteed
  2. Batch testing
  3. All components are traceable
  4. Added liability cover
