Last year, the Construction Products Association (CPA) published the document Built Environment – Proposed construction product competence standard – white paper, proposing new competence requirements for all those using or otherwise working with construction products, and is now gearing up to develop a British Standard at BSI. This standard is due to have impact on the entire supply chain, and the CPA is keen to have input in the development from small contractors as well as large to ensure its practicality and usability.

The CPA is seeking a voluntary perspective to join the development group. The project will likely last between 18 months to two years, and though meeting frequency and input will vary according to the task, it will likely have a meeting at least once a month for two hours. The CPA appreciates that SME contractors may have limited resources, so would be willing to have a conversation exploring options as to levels of contribution.

To enquire about the position, or for further information, please contact Hanna Clarke by COP 3 March 2023.
