A particulate-filtering facepiece respirator (PFFR) is a disposable respirator that covers the nose and mouth. It filters out airborne particles, including dust and fumes. There are seven classes of PFFRs approved by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), including N95, Surgical N95, N99, N100, R95, P95, P99, and P100. Surgical N95 masks are NIOSH-approved N95 masks that are also approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as surgical masks, via the 510(k) Premarket Authorization process.
In light of COVID-19, the FDA has issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for KN95 masks. KN95 is a Chinese standard for respirator masks. Similar to the N95 standard, masks must filter 95% or more of particles to meet the KN95 standard. You can find more information at About KN95 Masks.
