To calm Brexit construction problems the government has delayed the start date for new rules for construction products, a move which has been welcomed by industry leaders. 

This delay to post-Brexit reforms follows disruption to the construction industry due to the pandemic and leaving the EU. There is a construction materials shortage impacting builders and businesses across the UK, and the government hopes that this delay will give companies more time to adapt.
