However, five categories in the construction sector have been given exceptions to ensure continuity, namely critical maintenance and repair work, major public infrastructure construction works, building construction work, professional services or consultants and as well as other services in the supply chain such as the supply of building materials, delivery of materials and so on.

All companies involved in such projects must obtain permission to operate from MITI through the CIMS MITI portal.
