Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI)
The UK is raising the bar on performance information supplied with construction products with Isuue 1 of the CCPI, published in September 2021.
Developed by the Construction Products Association, CCPI is in response to one of the key findings of the enquiry into the Grenfell fire which confirmed that shortcomings in product information had contributed to the disaster. Particular concern was raised about inadequate specifier guidance, product information, marketing materials and performance testing claims.
The WPA has issued guidance for businesses on how to implement this upcoming Code which addresses the need to ensure product information provided to buyers is clear, unambiguous, accurate, up-to-date and accessible.
