COVID19 is changing the way we live and work.

Governments around Australia are putting in place a wide range of necessary but restrictive measures to slow the progress of the virus and to protect the safety of Australians. Together these are having a profound and powerful impact across our society and our economy.

We have compiled a list of useful online resources for AMEC members. This is not a comprehensive list and the information made available is constantly changing. We will endeavour to keep you up to date with any information that may impact or affect the industry, as it becomes available.

In the first instance, members should consult Government Websites for all essential official information

If there are any particular areas or information you require, please don’t hesitate to contact AMEC.
