On February 12, 2021, the European Union (EU) Commission published frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the export requirements for Covid-19 vaccines. The export controls were implemented on January 29, 2021 and are effective through March 31, 2021.

The FAQs are intended to serve as guidance for exporters and include clarification on:

  • Which products are subject to controls;
  • Which goods and countries are excluded from the scope of the regulation; and
  • Customs procedures.

A template for an export authorization application is also provided for exporters. The template can be used when the Member State’s competent authority has not made one available yet.

More details on the export requirements can be found in our previous Newsflash here:
