NIOSH entered a Memorandum of Understandingexternal icon (MOU) in 2018 with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This MOU granted NIOSH the authority to approve surgical N95 filtering facepiece respirators. Prior to this MOU, both NIOSH and FDA approved and cleared surgical N95s. The Model Number/Product Line in bold text followed by (FDA) indicates these surgical N95 respirators in the table below. NIOSH also provides a table of the surgical N95 respirators approved prior to the MOU. If you believe a surgical N95 respirator is missing from the list, contact the CDC to determine the respirator’s approval status. Call 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636). Also contact the FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health at 1-800-638-2041 to verify its clearance. Surgical N95 respirators approved under the MOU do not require FDA’s 510(k) clearance. These NIOSH-approved surgical N95 respirators are only on the Certified Equipment List (CEL).
