Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) published
The Code has been published alongside manufacturer preparation information and Code guidance to drive higher standards in the presentation of construction product information in the manufacturing industry
The Code for Construction Product Information, developed by the CPA’s Marketing Integrity Group, sets a level playing field for all construction product manufacturers to ensure that the information they provide passes five tests:
In response to the Grenfell disaster, Dame Judith Hackitt published a report in 2018 – Building A Safer Future. The report confirmed radical change was needed for construction products, particularly in the areas of testing, information and marketing.
The Code has been published alongside manufacturer preparation information and Code guidance to drive higher standards in the presentation of construction product information in the manufacturing industry. Registration for manufacturer verification will open towards the end of 2021 and organisations can register their interest now to receive updates.
Management of the published Code and its verification has been formally handed over from the Construction Products Association to Construction Product Information Ltd.
