A large increase in the number of counterfeit respirators has been seen alongside the massive increase in demand for PPE. Before buying large quantities of third-party PPE supplies, it's essential that you and your purchaser look into the legitimacy of the seller. Below are some links to helpful websites that provide tips and tricks for identifying fake products and sellers. Always double-check your orders when working with a new or unknown distributor.
These resources are from the American Center for Disease Control (CDC) so some of the guidelines and expectations are different than here in B.C., but the tips they provide are still very effective and useful in our province. If you have any questions or concerns about a seller, don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
