EN 1836:2005 / UV400

This test is needed for all kind of sunglasses to be sold within the EU.

- The European standard EN 1836:2005 has four transmittance ratings: "0" for insufficient UV protection, "2" for sufficient UHV protection, "6" for good UHV protection and "7" for "full" UHVV protection, meaning that no more than 5% of the 380 nm rays are transmitted. Products which fulfill the standard receive a CE mark.

- UV 400 protection. (Lenses block light rays with wavelengths up to 400 nanometers, which means that your eyes are shielded from even the tiniest UV rays.).

- In addition to filtering, the standard also lists requirements for minimum robustness, labeling, materials (non-toxic for skin contact and not combustible) and lack of protrusions (to avoid harm when wearing them)
