CPA Chief Executive Responds to Independent Review of the Construction Products Testing Regime

Peter Caplehorn, Chief Executive of the Construction Products Association, comments on the publication of the Independent Review of the Construction Products Testing Regime:   

“We are very pleased to see the publication of this Review. Both authors are known for their intellect and objective approach to the challenges facing our industry.  

“This report should be required reading for policy-makers and industry leaders alike, coming at a critical time not only for the future of the UK product testing and certification sector, but for the wider culture and practices of UK construction as well.  The recommendations cover a wide range of urgent issues, and the CPA and its members will be focusing on developing the necessary responses and actions in consultation with department officials.

“It is also very pleasing to see solid support for the work we are doing in developing and implementing the Code for Construction Product Information, a fundamental foundation for reform in the sector.”
