Is it advisable to submit an individual exemption request as a company?
In the current situation, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management prefers to grant generic exemptions. That is also how the exemptions have been framed up to now. The capacity of the evaluating bodies is not sufficient to handle individual applications in the short term. For the time being it has therefore been agreed that the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, as the coordinating department, will request generic exemptions from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. The departments are supported in this process by experts from RIVM and the Ctgb. Frequent consultations are also held with various sectors that are involved. If a manufacturer believes they have a product that has added value against the coronavirus, but that product does not fall under a regular authorisation or one of the exemptions, then they can submit information about this to P.O.box Documentary Services.
