Is it possible to distribute personal protective equipment at will?
On December 15, 2016, a group of experts gathered in Beijing to discuss the "13th Five-Year Development Plan for Personal Protective Equipment Standards".

This seminar was conducted at the 2016 annual meeting of the National Technical Committee for Standardization of Personal Protective Equipment. Experts at the meeting proposed that the formulation and revision of personal protective equipment standards must be based on serving workers, and a standard system with mandatory national standards for personal protective equipment as the core should be formed. On this basis, standardize the purchase and distribution of personal protective equipment by enterprises, promote the survival of the fittest in the market, and eliminate unreasonable low-price competition.
It is reported that this annual meeting is the first meeting of the Fifth National Standardization Technical Committee of Personal Protective Equipment. After this re-election, there are 49 members. Among them, not only experts in the military and civilian fields such as the production, scientific research, and testing of personal protective equipment are included, but also the heads of relevant regulatory departments of the State Administration of Work Safety, and occupational health management who use personal protective equipment and work in central enterprises.

For different job positions, There will be no arbitrariness for enterprises to distribute protective equipment of what type and level of protection, and there is a basis for government supervision.
