BIAFD keeping its members better informed  (24 March, 2020)

Following the announcement by UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, of tight UK restrictions to combat the Covid-19 outbreak, BIAFD has stepped up its news and information feed to members to an even higher level than usual.
BIAFD Bulletins are being issued several times daily with updated information from the UK and Irish Government, links to detailed Government guidance, and news about developments in key market sectors.
Members are finding the service valuable as it filters Government output and delivers the relevant information for the fastener sector and its key markets, so that directors and managers can focus on their business and welfare of the employees.
BIAFD also has a dedicated Linked In Group for members to exchange information and ideas. Originally designed so members could share non-competitive technical information the Group has been expanded to cover Covid-19 developments and information.
As always BIAFD is committed to keeping its members better informed. As one member was quick to comment 'We're getting our moneys' worth from BIAFD with its sourcing and breaking down of the government advice'.
