The 65 page report – downloadable at www.buildingsafely.co.uk – details feedback from 35 trade associations representing the views of many thousands of member fi rms across the supply chain, and 180 individual provider and user organisations of construction product information, including most of the largest companies in the industry. The new Code was developed to prevent some of the issues raised in Dame Judith Hackitt's report 'Building A Safer Future', following the Grenfell Tower fi re. The CPA was tasked by Dame Judith Hackitt and the Government with tackling the shortcomings identifi ed in Chapter 7 of the report relating to product information. The fi ndings confi rm that the industry welcomes and supports the Code, and considers it a crucial step in the right direction. Comments confi rmed that more clarity was needed in some areas of the Code, particularly around the training and competence requirements, and on what exactly was required to comply with the di erent Clauses. The MIG spent a further two months analysing and working through the Code so it refl ects the massive amount of expert feedback from the consultation. Adam Turk, Chair of the CPA's Marketing Integrity Group and CEO of Siderise says: "We are delighted with the breadth and depth of response received. The published results are slightly later than planned but given the importance of the Code, we wanted to make sure all responses were included in the analysis. Strenuous e orts were also made in reaching out to organisations directly to ensure everyone across the industry had the opportunity to comment." "The overwhelming support and constructive feedback has reassured us that the Code is absolutely the right step forward for the industry while also giving us a lot of insightful input to enable the MIG to review the wording of the Clauses in line with these detailed responses," continues Adam. "Whilst changes have been made around the clarity and detail within the Code, I can confi rm that the eleven Clauses remain principally close to those presented in the report."
