Construction Sector Brexit update
New ‘no deal’ Brexit information has been made available for the construction sector on the manufacture or use of CE-marked construction products.
This new guidance explains how to check the CE marks of products to find out if a ‘no deal’ Brexit might impact you. If you are a manufacturer, importer, distributor, authorised representative of construction products or a builder, specifier, certifier or construction professional, a ‘no deal’ Brexit might affect you!
Members working in this area are also advised to consult the following websites for more information on how to prepare for Brexit:
- Additional information on Brexit and the Construction Products Regulation can be found on the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government’s webpage.
- For support and guidance on standards and certification members should contact the National Standards Authority of Ireland, which is an EU ‘notified body’: www.nsai.ie Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: 01 8073800
