COVID-19: EU INTRODUCES EXPORT CONTROLS ON PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

On 16 March, the EU announced that the Commission had introduced a requirement for exports of personal protective equipment (PPE) outside Europe to take place only if authorised (licensed) by Member States.  The development, for an initial 6 weeks, aims to protect the availability of supplies of such equipment within the EU Single Market.  Some individual Member States had already introduced such restrictions.  EU Regulation 2020/402/EU has been enacted to implement the controls.
