In view of the sanitary crisis arising from the global spread of COVID-19, Argentina took executive action to effectively reduce the exportation of ventilators, which are considered as a critical sanitary supply in the fight against the virus.

According to Executive Order No. 301/2020 the exportation of ventilators -classified under the tariff code 9019.20.10- will require a special permit to be granted by the Federal Ministry of Productive Development.

This restriction will remain in place until the Federal Sanitary Emergency -declared in December, 2019 by means of Law 27,541- comes to an end.
