Code for construction product information (CCPI)
The Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) was created to promote an urgent and positive culture and behaviour change in the way the construction product manufacturing industry manages and provides information on their products. The CCPI was initiated by the Construction Product Association (CPA) as a direct response to Dame Judith Hackitt’s review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety set up in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
There are eleven Clauses of the CCPI which cover a wide range of matters from responsibility for product information, to accuracy of and clarity of performance claims made, general information and competency. The objective of the Code is that any claim made about a Construction Product must be substantiated by appropriate, clear, and unambiguous evidence.
The CCPI is built around these five ‘acid tests’ - product information must be Clear, Accurate, Up-to-date, Accessible and Unambiguous.
An independent and robust validation process is being implemented to underpin the Code that will give more confidence in the provision and management of product information by all stakeholders, setting the market for UK construction products ahead of others.
The CCPI verification process consists of a product safety-related leadership and culture survey, verification of organisations’ product information management systems, and validation of specific product set evidence submitted for the eleven clauses that make up the CCPI, promoting accuracy in the creation, communication, and management of ‘Construction Product Information’.
Manufacturers will sign up to undertake the verification process in relation to their product information and upon successful completion will receive a CCPI verification mark for their verified product set.
As part of industry due diligence and the requirements under the code for construction product information (CCPI), SIG have made a commitment to our customers that they can have absolute confidence when buying from us, that all products have been assessed against current regulatory requirements and are fully traceable.
