From 01. The first aid kits must contain additional components in the future. These include a 14-piece set of cut plaster strips and a children's dressing pack.

In addition to the previous content materials, the boxes must now also contain a 14-piece set of cut plaster strips, finger strips and fingertip bandages, a dressing pack in child size and wipes for skin cleaning. There are no other components.

The ADAC points out that the first-aid kits that were previously valid may still be used until their respective expiry dates have expired. If you want to buy a new first aid kit, you should make sure that it complies with the new DIN 13164 standard. (pm)
