CPA Call for Evidence on Product Information

08 March 2019



Since the publication of the Hackitt Review in Spring 2018, the construction industry has been working hard to meet the various challenges set for it.


The Construction Products Association (CPA) has been involved with several critical elements of this activity, and has established its own Marketing Integrity Group (“MIG”) to specifically address Chapter 7 of the Review, which challenges how product information is made available to the wider supply chain.


In order to inform its work further, the CPA’s MIG are launching a Call For Evidence with a Survey that should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.


Areas of interest covered are:-

  • Ease of finding information
  • Product substitution
  • Completeness and correctness of information
  • Products as part of a system, or use in a variety of applications


The Housing Forum is working with the CPA to seek responses from across the supply chain; including architects, designers, specifiers, consultants, manufacturers, contractors, builders, merchants, maintainers, and indeed anyone who uses product information through the life of the asset.


The Survey will run for four weeks, closing on Friday 5th April. The CPA intends to publish its findings and recommendations in the autumn.
