The Directorate-General of Foreign Trade (DGFT), Ministry of Commerce and Industry has released a notification regarding the upliftment of export ban on all alcohol-based hand sanitizers, including alcohol-based hand sanitizers in containers with dispenser pumps.

Ministry of Commerce released notification states that “Export of Alcohol-based Hand Sanitizers in containers with dispenser pumps is free for export. All Alcohol-based Hand Sanitizers exported in any other form/packaging are free for exports, with the immediate effect.”

DGFT’s new notification is an amendment to the earlier issued notification on June 1, 2020, which had restricted the exports of hand sanitizer items in containers with dispenser pumps.

And on May 6, the Central Government had lifted a ban on the export of non-alcoholic sanitizers that was in place since March 24, 2020, but prohibited exports of alcohol-based sanitizers to boost its availability in the domestic market between the COVID-19 pandemic.

With Warm Regards,

CL Bureau.
