FM sought for evidence on construction product information

The Construction Products Association’s (CPA) has extended its Call for Evidence on construction product information to 23 April 2019, and in particular is seeking responses from the facilities management sector.

The survey forms a critical part of the construction industry’s reform post-Grenfell, addressing the issue of how construction product information is made available to the wider supply chain. This was one of the various challenges put to the construction industry in the Hackitt Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety. 

To date, the survey has attracted over 400 responses, largely from manufacturers and distributors of construction products and architects.

To improve the number and balance from across the construction supply chain the CPA’s Marketing Integrity Group, who designed the survey, has decided to extend the call for evidence and is calling on engineers, consultants, contractors, surveyors and facilities management/ maintenance professionals and organisations to take part.

Adam Turk, Chair of the CPA’s Marketing Integrity Group, commented: “We’ve been encouraged to see so many responses to our survey in the space of just a few weeks. A strong balance of input from across the supply chain, however, is crucial if we are to make recommendations that can really have an impact. That’s why we are seeking responses in particular from facilities management. Your input is vital to helping us reduce risk in our built environment.”

The CPA’s Marketing Integrity Group intends to publish its findings and recommendations in the autumn.
