PPE Buyers Guide

Published 29 October 2020

A number of Australian Government agencies have been working together for some months on PPE supply. As part of this work the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, in collaboration with the Department of Health, has developed the PPE Buyer’s Guide. The purpose of the buyer’s guide is to assist organisations when purchasing PPE for COVID-19.


The four-page guide covers key information consumers need to know when purchasing PPE, including:

  • information on how PPE is regulated
  • information on common types of PPE and how they are used
  • tips to avoid fraud
  • information on consumer rights
  • information on WHS duties.

Download the PPE Buyers Guide here. The guide will soon be available on the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources website.
