Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > FRANCE: the decree on the recognition in occupational disease of an SARS-CoV2 infection has been published

Decree no. 2020-1131 relating to the recognition of pathologies linked to SARS-CoV2 infection as occupational diseases (MP) was published in the Journal Officiel on 15 September. It comes into force as of tomorrow.

The decree creates, for those insured under the general and agricultural schemes, and for those insured to whom these tables apply, two new tables of occupational diseases “Acute respiratory diseases linked to an SARS-CoV2 infection”. For conditions not designated in these tables and not contracted under the conditions of these tables, the decree entrusts the examination of these applications to a single PM recognition committee, whose composition is reduced to allow faster examination of the files, while maintaining guarantees of impartiality.

The two new tables take into account Covid19 patients who have required oxygen therapy or any other form of ventilatory assistance, as attested by medical reports, or who have died.
