A warm welcome again this week to all SPRA members and readers of the SPRA Weekly News.
Although most of the UK had a bank holiday on Monday this week, we are still able to provide our members and non-members of SPRA with a bumper edition of information. If you are a member please ensure you have access to our dedicated members area which has additional items of interest to those involved in all aspects of single ply roofing.
In this week’s edition there is a reminder for those attending the RCI show on the 29th/30th September at MK Dons Stadium in Milton Keynes. SPRA will have a stand for all to attend and Nigel Blacklock, Chair of the SPRA Technical Committee, will be giving a presentation on Thursday 30th September at the event.
On the training front our Wind Load Calculation Protocol (WLPC) sessions are starting again this month. There are still a couple of places available. Please ensure you read our item in the General Area concerning this as these are open both to members and non-members of SPRA.
Training relating to SAP, SUP and OSAT opportunities and assessment is also covered in more detail in our Members Area.
Ongoing items this week, that you may have missed in our Members Area previously, include a reminder again on the consultation on proposals for the new Building Safety Levy, which is expected to come into force in 2023, the result of the Build UK consultation on the CITB Levy and access to the results of the recent consultation on the CCPI. There is also information concerning the date for ending recognition of the CE mark in Great Britain.
New items this week include information from Build UK and CSCS on ‘How to be a Smart Site’, UK Government on reforming competition and consumer policy and the latest statement on the availability of construction products published by CLC Product Availability Group. The CPA Construction Trade Survey 2021 Q2 is out this week and there is information below regarding how to obtain a copy of this report.
As always, hope you find the enclosed interesting and informative.
We wish all well and have a safe and productive week.
The SPRA Team
