N95, KN95 & other FFPs are all respirator masks that are subject to various regulatory standards around the world. Respirators certified to these standards are expected to have similar performance. There are slight differences in their specifications, like a variation in the maximum pressure the masks must be able to withstand as a person inhales and exhales. Here are the global standards by country:

N95 (United States NIOSH-42CFR84)


FFP2 (Europe EN 149-2001)


KN95 (China GB2626-2006)


P2 (Australia/New Zealand AS/NZA 1716:2012)


Korea 1st class (Korea KMOEL – 2017-64)


DS (Japan JMHLW-Notification 214, 2018)
