COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill – Impact on the Construction Industry in Singapore

08 Apr 2020 LegisWatch

With the passing of the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill (“Bill”) in Parliament on 7 April 2020, we provide updates on the impact it brings on the construction industry in Singapore. The Bill will offer certain reliefs to the construction industry which has been impacted by worldwide supply chain disruptions and manpower shortages. This update examines how the reliefs/measures will impact the local construction industry, outlines the implications of the circuit breaker measures introduced by the Government on 3 April 2020, and examines the BCA advisory dated 5 April 2020 issued to the construction industry.
