Brexit - keeping you informed

Update - Friday 17 October

From the Information Commissioner's Office

If your organisation sends or receives personal information to or from countries in the EU, you need to act now to ensure that data flow can lawfully continue.   At the moment personal data flow is unrestricted because the UK is an EU member state. If the UK leaves the European Union with no deal, that will change, and additional measures will be needed to make sure your business complies with the law.  

It’s important you make sure your organisation is properly prepared for all exit scenarios, whether you’re a sole trader or small business or a large multi-national. View it here...

Why we provide this page

The Association for Project Safety is apolitical. The association is committed to working with legislators of any party to make sure all construction workers - and increasingly users of any project - are safe and their wellbeing is paramount. Members will hold their personal views but the association is, and must remain, neutral.

That said our members are all about mitigating risk. So APS is stepping up the information you may need to be prepared for the UK’s exit from the European Union.

The government is to hold a series of roadshows which are open to businesses. You can find details on the right of this page.  The Construction Industry Council is also circulating material. The most up to date can be found on the right of this page as well.   

Questions about Brexit

If you have any urgent questions about Brexit, please send them in.  We will get the fullest answer we can and will share the answer with all members (keeping whoever asked the questions anonymous).  

Send your questions to info@aps.org.uk putting 'Brexit' in the subject line or click on the right of the page to send an email.
