The Wall Street Journal reported that, according to a U.S. State Department memo and information from businesses, China has imposed export restrictions to stop the export of medical supplies.
China implemented new export restrictions in April, requiring that its National Medical Products Administration certify its goods as a stamp of quality control. It has requested that some products, such as masks, be checked multiple times.
U.S. companies 3M, Cellex, Inc., Emory Healthcare, General Electric, Owens & Minor, Inc. and PerkinElmer, Inc. have been impacted by China’s export controls. Some companies have been able to get products shipped following negotiations with the Chinese government, while others remain in limbo.
