BPIC has a key role to play in supporting a sustainable building products industry into the future and its support of the Construction Product Alliance is welcomed by the industry.

The shared secretariat arrangement is for an initial 6 month period with the intention of BPIC progressively taking over all functions after that should the arrangement prove beneficial to all parties.

Initially BPIC will assist Ai Group in putting together a regular CPA newsletter, sending out invitations to form a second tier of CPA stakeholders, and investigating the feasibility of a research project to quantify instances of non-conforming product in the industry and provide verifiable case studies of NCP across the building sector.
