Indian Companies Start to Export of PPE / N-95 Masks With Restrictions

Indian government has removed restrictions on the export of personal protective equipment (PPE) and 2/3 Ply surgical masks. It has also allowed export of N-95 masks with a monthly quota of 50 lakh units.

However, medical goggles continue to remain in a restricted category with a monthly quota of 20 lakh units and Nitrile/NBR gloves continue to remain prohibited.

“Notification No. 21 dated July 28 is amended to the extent that the export policy of 2/3 Ply surgical masks, medical coveralls of all classes and categories (including medical coveralls for COVID-19) is amended from ‘Restricted’ to ‘Free’ category and these coveralls (including gowns and aprons of all types) are now freely exportable,” the directorate general of foreign trade (DGFT) said in a notification.


“The export policy of N-95/FFP2 masks or its equivalent masks is revised from ‘Prohibited’ to ‘Restricted’ category. A monthly quota of 50 lakh units has been fixed for N-95/FFP2 masks or its equivalent, for issuing export licenses to eligible applicants as per the criteria to be separately issued in a Trade Notice,” the notification added.
