The Royal Academy of Engineering and its partners across the National Engineering Policy Centre are working to support government by helping identify potential future shortages and bottlenecks across critical supply chains in coming months. 

We would like to hear from engineers from all sectors about supply chain issues they are currently having, or anticipate having. This might include displacement effects created by the repurposing of production lines to manufacture coronavirus (COVID-19)-related products and shortages caused by reduced operation of factories, or other economic factors; issues with services and skills are as relevant as with products and consumables.   

Please use the form below to tell us, as specifically as you can, where key materials and components, or services and skills, are causing difficulties. 

We would also like to hear where products of services could become difficult to source in the coming months, as production scales back up and the economy rebuilds. 

We are currently processing the initial submissions but you're still welcome to submit thoughts on behalf of your business.
