Subject: Government bans export of sanitisers, all types of ventilators
NEW DELHI: The government on Tuesday banned the export of all kinds of artificial respiratory apparatus, oxygen therapy apparatus and breathing devices, and sanitisers. The ban, aimed to prevent any scope for export by alternate classification, is in addition to the March 19 order that prohibited exports of ventilators.

“The export of all ventilators including any artificial respiratory apparatus or oxygen therapy apparatus or any other breathing appliance/devices... is prohibited with immediate effect,” the the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.

On March 19, the government had banned the export of certain kinds of masks, ventilators and textile raw materials for masks and coveralls amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“It widens the ambit of products under the prohibited category and will prevent any scope of export of these items by any other classification,” commerce and industry ministry said in a statement.

DGFT also changed the export norm for sanitisers from ‘free’ to ‘prohibited’.

As per the notification, the government will also not honour any letter of credit established before March 24 under the transitional arrangement under the Foreign Trade Policy.
