The CTPA Emergency Response Exchange is a service provided and funded by CTPA. This platform is intended as a temporary relief measure aimed at resolving urgent shortages in the supply chain of products required for the protection of individuals during the current COVID-19 public health emergency. The platform is open to all participants and will be actively connecting companies with relevant matching submissions. The scope of the exchange is limited to the manufacturing and supply of hand hygiene products, PPE and/or products identified as necessary for public protection or required by the National Health Service UK (NHS) and other relevant care providers.


By submitting this form, you are consenting to your contact details and information provided being stored, examined and shared with other users of the Exchange to facilitate matching manufacturers, suppliers and the NHS to assess shortages of manufacturing ingredients, components, as well as any other purpose related to the current COVID-19 health emergency.
