The prohibition on the export of personal protection equipment is lifted from 26 May 2020 onwards


From 26 May 2020, an export authorisation is no longer needed for certain items of personal protection equipment.

The equipment concerns mouth and nose protection equipment, protective garments, and spectacles and visors for the protection of the eyes. 

From 26 April 2020, it was an obligation to get an export authorisation for such personal protection equipment pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2020/568. This terminates on 26 May 2020 and from that date onwards you may export personal protection equipment without an authorisation. 

You can find the complete list of the items subject to the prohibition in Annex I of the Regulation (EU) 2020/568.
