RIBA responds to the Government’s latest Brexit technical notices
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today, Thursday 13 August, responded to the Government’s publication of further ‘no deal’ technical notices.
RIBA Chief Executive Alan Vallance says,
“The technical notices published today emphasise the huge burden that a no deal Brexit poses for UK businesses. Architects would be forced to navigate duplicate procurement systems, data protection rules and regulations in order to do business in the EU or import products from Europe. This would be a significant additional cost in time and money for our members, bringing no tangible benefit to their businesses. A no deal situation would have an enormous impact on the sector and must be avoided. Both sides must present a deal which avoids this outcome, preserving vital measures for the health of UK architecture”
