Plastic pipe supplies uninterrupted by Brexit

Brexit has had little impact on the supply of plastic pipes and fittings for construction and housing projects in the UK, an industry body has reported.

Caroline Ayres of the British Plastics Federation (BPF) Pipes Group, said: “Our industry is continuing to supply its markets without any interruptions, whilst our members continue to operate within COVID-19 guidelines to ensure safe and secure delivery of plastic pipes and fittings to customers.”

BPF Pipes Group manufacturers remained committed to supplying products to the same standards, a statement said, incorporating third party approved products to British European Standards (BS ENs) where applicable.

The BSI’s membership of CEN and CENELEC is continuing beyond the EU exit transition period, the statement added, enabling the UK’s influence over standards produced in both CEN and CENELEC.
