  • COVID-19 : Précisions sur l’évaluation de la conformité des masques réquisitionnés ou importés
  • COVID-19: Clarification on Conformity Assessment of Requisitioned or Imported Masks

By an interministerial instruction of 5 April 2020, The Ministry of Labour made amendments to an interministerial instruction of 31 March 2020 concerning the equivalence of standards to be met by certain masks requisitioned or imported by the State for health professionals in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic. The new instruction has thus completed the annexes to this former instruction establishing equivalences between European and foreign standards for FFP2 type masks. It also specified that personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical devices placed on the market under the conditions defined by the instruction are not intended to be marketed to consumers. This new interministerial instruction came into force on 7 April 2020.

In a circular dated 17 April 2020, the Ministry of Justice clarified Title I of Ordinance No. 2020-427 of 15 April 2020 on various provisions relating to time limits for dealing with the Covid-19 epidemic.
