Merlin Properties bets on Covid-19 certification in Portugal and Spain
01 June 2020 |

The measures to fight Covid-19 implemented by Merlin Properties on its 64 assets spread across Portugal and Spain should be thoroughly scrutinised by AENOR, so as to obtain a certification on the implementation of sanitary measures to fight Covid-19.


The company should start by assessing the good practices of the REIT’s 13 shopping centres and then analyse the measures implemented on Merlin’s 51 office buildings and business parks.

According to the note published last week by AENOR, «Merlin Properties has been working intensely during the state of emergency to implement plans which include a wide range of measures to maximize the security of its shopping centres, such as the intense cleaning of the facilities and the implementation of social distancing measures by installing partitions and warning notices».

AENOR’s role will be to assess whether those practices meet the recommendations and demands required by national and regional healthcare authorities on this matter. If the assets pass the test, Merlin Properties will be the first company in Iberia to obtain that certification.
