Phase 4 Risk Adjusted Strategy Regulation Published

The new Risk Adjusted Strategy Regulations to be implemented during Phase 4 of Lockdown have been published. It is important to note that the provisions contained in the most recent publication only apply during Phase 4. Please note further that while these regulations maintain all the provisions for forestry which were in the draft, they have made no tangible concessions in response to business’ requests besides an increase in general manufacturing which increases to 30% staff capacity. It is, however, positive that they do clarify that ports must be open for the export and import of all Phase 4 products. FSA will remain engaged with the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (DTIC) and the Presidency, to obtain further opening up of the construction sector.

FSA will keep members updated with any new development via our website, Telegram Channel and e-mail distribution list.
