New Brexit guidance for construction firms

19 October 2020

The Construction Leadership Council has published new guidance for construction ahead of Brexit at the end of the year.

The guidance relates to the movement of people and workers into the UK as the Brexit transition period with the European Union reaches its conclusion at the end of December.

The guidance, which was drafted by the CLC’s movement of people workstream and the Brexit working group, that included members of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) policy team, offers an overview of the new points-based immigration system, the Common Travel Area (CTA), the skilled worker route, the shortage occupation list, how to become a licensed sponsor, the rights of EU, EEA and Swiss migrants, the mutual recognition of professional qualifications and the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) as well as useful links and resources.

You need to get a better image for this article! The map shows non-EU countries in blue (Norway, Switzerland, the Balkans) and shows Ireland (an EU country) in white with a faded part of the Union Jack. A false image undermines the credibility of the text.

The image used in this link is incorrect . The republic of Ireland should be represented as part of the EU .

Do you have any news on the supply/import of materials and avoiding delays as a result of Brexit?
