The French NF062 regulation is not a standard, nor is it mandatory. It sets out the steps that have to be passed in order for condoms to be attributed the NF mark. The mark is nominative and can only be applied to a given condom of a given brand and with specific attributes (size, shape, colour, flavour, and packaging). In order to receive the NF mark, more intensive tests are applied, i.e. the tests on any one batch are more frequent than they would be in the CE marking process. Products with both the CE and NF markings, therefore, offer even higher quality for the consumer.
