European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen wore an FFP2 mask made by Shengquan Group when attending a recent meeting, a nod to how the Jinan-based company's products are achieving international recognition.

The FFP2 mask is made according to the European EN149:2001 standard for masks. Its protective effect is equivalent to the N95 mask certified by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.

Shengquan Group has exported nearly 600 million masks to European Union (EU) countries since April 2020. In 2020, the group received its CE certification, which allows its products to be sold in European and United States markets. Its products have since been exported to Japan, Germany, Southeast Asia, and a number of other countries and regions.
