Export ban lifted on gas masks, surgical blades

Date: 27-02-2020
Subject: Export ban lifted on gas masks, surgical blades
NEW DELHI: The government has removed eight more items, including a kind of gas mask and surgical blades, from the list of banned export items, the commerce and industry ministry said in a notification. Last month, the government had banned exports of all kinds of personal protection equipment including N-95 masks and masks used to protect people from air-borne particles amid the Covid-19 outbreak in China.

On February 8, the government removed surgical masks and gloves from the banned list.

According to a notification of the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), eight more items are now “freely exportable”.

These items are all ophthalmic instruments and appliances except medical goggles; surgical blades; nonwoven shoe covers; breathing appliances used by airmen, divers, mountaineers or firemen; gas masks with chemical absorbent for filtration against poisonous vapour, smoke, gases; HDPE (high-density polyethylene) tarpaulin/ plastic tarpaulin; PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) conveyor belt and biopsy punch.

“However, export of all other personal protection equipment including N-95 masks or other items not specified in the exceptions above shall remain prohibited,” it said in the notification.
