Targeted Exemptions (TEs) are tightly scoped and time limited State-issued exemptions to a specified subset of Standards, granted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


TEs should not be granted in response to systemic issues. They represent a temporary transitional option for States as they move back from reliance on the use of alleviations towards compliance with the SARPs. TEs should only be considered by a State once it is clear that all other options have been considered and determined to be unsatisfactory.
