Export of personal protective equipment (PPE) is currently prohibited


We are regularly asked about the import of personal protective equipment.

Export of PPE is prohibited for the time being. For importing personal protective equipment, the following conditions apply:

  • We start a preliminary investigation for each application
  • The Dutch government and customs control the logistics of these products
  • All personal protective equipment must be provided with a CE marking. The control obligation applies to manufacturer and to distributors.

See also the website of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency for more information about personal protective equipment.
