DGFT amends restriction on Export of Alcohol based Hand Sanitizer: Aimed
Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) issued the Notification No. 08/2015-20 Dt. 01.06.2020 and amended the restriction on Export of Alcohol Based Hand Sanitizer. Now, Only Alcohol Based Hand Sanitizer in containers with dispenser Pumps are Prohibited. Alcohol Based Hand Sanitizers exported in any other form/packaging are “FREE” for export with immediate effect.
Mr. Rajiv Nath, Forum Coordinator, Association of Indian Medical Devices Industry (AiMeD) said “We are delighted with the easing of export restrictions on sanitizers as production had to be reduced as unsold inventories piled up. This is what was sought in phase 1 to allow exports of large capacity / non pump sanitizer. Hopefully next is permission to export 3 layer Masks then Non Covid IVD kits”
