What is the main difference between the KN95 and N95 respirators?

KN95 is considered to be the equivalent to the US NIOSH N95, in terms of filter performance as outlined in the 3M document and other N95 alternatives for counties. KN95 are also recognized by WorkSafeBC in being the equivalent to N95. The KN95 just follows a different certification process, i.e. GB2626-2006, vs the N95 (NIOSH – 42C FR84).
