The Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI)

Consultation

Consultation is now closed.

 

The industry consultation on a new Code for Construction Product Information is now CLOSED.

The consultation ran from the 1st February 2021 to the 31st March 2021 to gather views from construction product manufacturers, users of product information and trade associations on the new Code, the implementation of its 11 Clauses, and the proposed ongoing management and policing once launched.

Thank you to everyone who took part. The views of the industry are important and we will now take time to review your feedback. A published copy of the findings will be available from the end of April 2021.

This industry consultation follows the Call For Evidence survey commissioned by the Marketing Integrity Group (MIG) in 2019 on the use of construction product information. The MIG was set up to tackle shortcomings in ‘Product Information’ identified in Chapter 7 of the ‘Building A Safer Future’ report, published by Dame Judith Hackitt in 2018.

It was clear from the findings of the 2019 survey that the quality of product information can vary considerably between manufacturers.

83% of respondents were in agreement that an industry Code of Conduct for construction product information should be introduced.

The MIG has listened to the industry’s views and recommendations. The findings from over 500 respondents to the Call For Evidence survey, together with two years of work amongst a broad range of industry professionals, led to the creation of the Code for Construction Product Information. The Code is made up of 11 Clauses, which strive for product information to be:

  • Clear
  • Accurate
  • Up-to-date
  • Accessible
  • Unambiguous

These five points are the acid tests that stand behind the proposed new Code. Plans are to launch the Code later this year.
