The CPA has produced its response to the Independent Review of the Construction Products Testing Regime by Paul Morrell OBE and Anneliese Day KC.  This latest briefing paper outlines how the CPA intends to respond to this report, as well as working with the government moving forward.

The DLUHC-commissioned report sets out recommendations for industry and government alike to improve and strengthen the testing regime for construction products. The uptake of its recommendations will be hugely consequential for safety and improved performance outcomes in construction.

The CPA is asking the government to help address some of the complex challenges facing the construction products industry currently. There are many interrelated issues that we hope can be addressed off the back of this report.

Asks include:

  • That government should respond and support the recommendations listed in the Paul Morrell OBE and Anneliese Day KC Independent Review of the Construction Product Testing Regime, including uptake across industry of the Code for Construction Product Information
  • That government should work with industry to action its recommendations and create a shared roadmap for practical progress, including what constitutes a ‘safety-critical’ product
  • That government move to address and give clarity to the CA Mark issue, ahead of the June 2025 deadline.
