The construction industry agenda again this week is heavily focussed on issues concerning Coronavirus and the post-Brexit transition period. On the economic front, in terms of business support, this has been increased for both businesses and individuals by the UK Government, as reported by Build UK in this week’s General Area. There is also an update by Build UK from various sources on the Coronavirus restrictions. Also, in the General Area this week, SPRA highlights the launch of the SPRA Wind Load Calculation Protocol – Guidance Sessions course, with further details and registration information. This week also includes a training update for members.
In our Members Area this week you will find a raft of important information that we would wish to draw your attention to concerning; updates on training during lockdown from CITB reported by Build UK and the CPA highlight important information relating to UK ETAs and their status with EU after 1 Jan 2021.
There is further information in the Member’s Area concerning the requirement of EORI numbers for the importing and exporting of goods, the economic impact of a second wave of coronavirus cases and the appointment of ‘Authorised Representatives’ with the EU. Finally, I would like to draw SPRA members, in all categories, attention to our Annual Audit and inform that they will be getting an email concerning this in the near future and request their co-operation in filing a prompt, accurate return.
As always, I hope you find the enclosed helpful and wish all SPRA members a safe and successful week ahead.
