Amid shortages of sanitiser and personal protective equipment (PPE) during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, a number of relaxations to the usual regimes have been introduced by the UK government for those who are looking to manufacture or import these products for the first time.
However, the relaxations do not apply to all products, and the extent of remaining controls will depend on a number of issues, including the classification of the product, its formulation or specifications and the intended use/customer. Shortages may become even more pronounced as the economy emerges from lockdown, with employers potentially looking to utilise both sanitisers and PPE to help ensure the workplace is “COVID-19 secure”.
Join Anita Lloyd and Nicola Smith in this webinar on Wednesday 20 May, between 2 and 3 p.m. BST, when they will discuss the extent of current relaxations and issues to be aware of, if your business is looking to manufacture or import these products into the UK.
An overview and invitation for each of the upcoming sessions in our series will be shared in coming days and weeks.
