First demand-side companies show leadership as CCPI Supporters Launch

Latest News Wed, Dec 6, 2023 7:45 AM

Leading contractors, developers and housebuilders have stepped up to support the Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) and signed a pledge to work with their strategic suppliers and manufacturers to drive CCPI conformance and raise standards in the industry.

Barratt Developments PLC, Berkeley Homes PLC, Mace Group, Morgan Sindall Group, Murphy, Persimmon Homes and Skanska UK, are the first companies to step up and become CCPI Demand-Side Supporters.

In becoming a CCPI Supporter, these companies are committing to supporting the CCPI and requiring their strategic suppliers and manufacturers of construction products in their supply chain to ensure that those products are either verified by the CCPI or undergoing the CCPI verification process.

The pledge includes a focus that CCPI conformance will be delivered as soon as possible and has a timebound commitment for delivery by December 2026 at the latest. To this end and wherever possible, CCPI Supporters are committed to introducing this commitment into supply agreements as a preference and prioritising working with strategic suppliers and manufacturers who prioritise delivery of CCPI verification and conformance.

The announcement has been positively welcomed by key industry organisations wishing to support this critical effort to raise standards in the industry including the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF), the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) and the Construction Products Association (CPA – which is also the organisation credited as the founder of the CCPI).

Dame Judith Hackitt, author of the Building a Safer Future Review and Chair of the Industry Safety Steering Group said, ‘It is great to see demand side companies take this lead and setting expectations for the supply chains. This is exactly what we need to see to drive the take up of CCPI’.

From the National Construction Products regulator, Duncan Johnson Deputy Director Construction Products said, “This is a very welcome initiative and an important step forward in constructing better, safer buildings.”

Amanda Long, Chief Executive of CPI Ltd, the not-for-profit organisation set-up to independently verify CCPI conformance said, ‘I warmly congratulate the first CCPI Supporters on their leadership and strongly encourage others to join them. CCPI Supporters recognise that they need to deploy products that are supplied with clear, accurate, accessible, up-to date and unambiguous product information. Products that are verified against the CCPI will help enable companies to have greater confidence in the construction product information on which they base important decisions in the construction process. Watch this space for further CCPI Supporters announcements to come!’

CCPI, having announced its first product set verifications at the beginning of September is gaining momentum with now approximately 48 companies either already through or in process for the CCPI Organisational Assessment, (which is the gateway element of the CCPI assessment process), and approximately 46 product sets (including approximately 700 products) product information either verified or in process of verification.

The launch of the CCPI Demand-Side Supporters now provides the opportunity for organisations that wish to drive positive tangible change in the sector from the demand-side to join this community and demonstrate their commitment.
