Return to EU-conformity
In accordance with Section 6 (6) of the Rules of Procedure of the AAMÜ, the following resolution is published:
Based on the findings of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) and the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS), there is currently no longer a supply bottleneck for particle-filtering half masks.
This means that a central prerequisite for the exemption possibilities according to § 9 MedBVSV, namely the shortage situation, is no longer given and exemptions in connection with the first-time provision on the EU internal market are no longer permitted.
With the cut-off date of 01.10.2020, economic actors are granted an appropriate transition period.
Based on the letter of the BMAS dated 31.07.2020, the deficiency situation necessary for exemption possibilities and decisions according to § 9 paragraph 1 and 2 MedBVSV can no longer be assumed. Therefore, as of October 1, 2020 at the latest, the prerequisites for exemptions according to § 9 (1) and (2) MedBVSV no longer exist.
