The Technical Committee meets quarterly to develop the CPA’s policies and responses regarding the major technical issues facing our members and the wider industry. Its aim is to help the CPA develop effective, coherent UK and EU legislation and building and product regulations and standards, whilst interpreting these for the benefit of our members’ businesses. Other major areas of attention include Building Information Modelling (“BIM”), the energy efficiency of homes and buildings, market surveillance and policing, CE marking and the Construction Products Regulation (“CPR”). With the experience of mid-level and senior executives from both companies and trade associations, the Technical Committee provides expert policy and technical advice through consultations with government, regulators, certification bodies and research communities. Its input is also invaluable to popular publications such as the CPA’s “Guidance Notes for the Construction Products Regulation”, “BIM for the Terrified”, “The Loft Conversion Project Guide” and “A Guide to Low-Carbon Domestic Refurbishment”.
