During pandemic or emergency situations, health authorities often reference these standards when making respirator recommendations, stating, for example, that certain populations should use an “N95, FFP2, or equivalent” respirator.

– USA’s N95 Niosh standard,
Respirators certified as meeting any of these standards can be expected to function very similarly to one another.
