Evidence on Product Information


Evidence on Product Information


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 CPA has been involved with several elements of this activity, and amongst these has established its own Marketing Integrity Group (MIG) to specifically address Chapter 7 of the report, which challenges how product information is made available to the wider supply chain.

In order to inform its work further, the CPA’s MIG is issuing a Call For Evidence. Amongst the 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 Call For Evidence has launched today with an online survey that should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The CPA encourages all its members as well as architects, designers, specifiers, consultants, contractors, builders, merchants, maintainers, and indeed anyone who uses product information through the life of an asset to respond. The survey will remain open until Friday 5 April
