The first UK construction products to achieve verification with the Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) were highlighted at a celebration event yesterday, (Sep 4) in Central London.
These will become the first products to carry the CCPI mark, aimed at giving confidence to users that the information for these products is clear, accurate, accessible, up-to-date, and unambiguous.
CCPI Chief executive Amanda Long said: “I hope this will inspire more manufacturers to start their journey towards product information verification against the CCPI. Next, we will see the demand-side seeking out CCPI verified products as we roll out our Supporters Offer and our Merchants and Distributors Code”.
More product sets are already in the verification pipeline and progressing with expectation to come through the process and onto the market over the coming weeks and months. Companies who have passed the CCPI Organisational Assessment stage of the verification process and are now actively working on product sets in process are: ACS Stainless Steel, Axter, Bauder, British Gypsum, BTS Facades, CGL Systems Ltd, Euroform Products, Fire Protection Ltd, Knauf Insulation, Marley, PFC-Corofil, Recticel, Siderise, Sika, Soprema, Tenmat, Valcan, VJ Technology and Voestalpine. More companies of different sizes, manufacturing all different types of construction products, are registering and working through the process every month.
The CCPI Assessment and Verification Event saw construction product manufacturers come together with other key stakeholders, to recognise their shared commitment to higher standards in building safety through higher standards in construction product information and product claims. Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review into Building Safety stimulated the development of the CCPI scheme to help drive improved product information management. Dame Judith joined the event and addressed manufacturers engaging in the process to mark their journey with CCPI.
CCPI was first launched in 2021 in response to Dame Judith’s report on the Grenfell Tower disaster https://www.the-glazine.com/?p=4245
