Expertise: Expert WitnessIndustry: Manufacturing

CHANGE Environmental provided expert consulting regarding the matter around scientific integrity of the proposed sale of the KN95 Respirators.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has been very tough on the goods and service markets given the high demands for various goods, most importantly, items such as masks and respirators to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately, like in all difficult times, there are those that wish to take advantage by carrying out our fraudulent activities and therefore, not all good and service providers issue legitimate goods and services.

With the suspicion that the KN95 respirators were non-conforming to the proposed 95% efficiency our team quickly showed by conducting a detailed analysis that was not the case. Our expertise concluded the testing by the company selling the proposed KN95 masks was found to have several issues including not being 95% efficient. This greatly limited the credibility of their proposed product and attempted to put a significant risk to those whom would have trust that product, but our work prevented those issues.
