We are proud to publish our latest report on the Impact of Brexit on the Fire Industry. This report focuses on the impacts on organisations, the preparation that was made, their thoughts on the future, government guidance and our industry's biggest concerns with Brexit and how the FIA has and will continue to help.

02 June 2021

In April 2021 we launched a survey to ensure we are representing the views of you and the wider industry as best as we can on the topic of how Brexit has impacted you and your business. We were keen to find out information on how general questions around Brexit, how helpful government guidance has been and how the UKCA mark is affecting you and much more.

Here are a few highlights that the report takes a deeper look into: 

  • On the topic of preparing for Brexit, 63% of organisations made a lot of effort with a further 25% of respondents making some effort to prepare for Brexit.
  • On Government guidance, 19% of respondents said that the government guidance on Brexit was definitely unclear. Whilst 44% of organisations found that it was somewhat unclear, with a further 25% stating it is neither clear nor unclear.
  • The biggest concerns were Regulations and the UKCA mark (88%), Skills Shortages (63%) and Expansion Limitations (56%).

Thank you to all of the respondents who took the time to fill out this short survey. Congratulation to Lee from Vimpex for winning the Amazon voucher
