The New Construction Products Regulator 2021
Following the Grenfell disaster on 14 June 2017, several inquiries, inquests, and investigations have heard evidence, drawn conclusions, and made recommendations. One key thread has been the focus on products used in building projects, and their integrity. This has now been manifested into law, as the Regulator for Construction Products.
Organisations operating in the construction and engineering industry will now have to reassess how they work. They may be specifier of their needs, designer, builder, supplier, or manufacturer. The chain of contracts may be long. Certain factors may be prescribed, or left to professional judgment such as lifespan, or British or EU standard.
The Regulator’s powers are wide, and industry’s duties many. The tragedy of Grenfell was that it was only understood after the event.
This virtual classroom seminar outlines the key points about the new Construction Products Regulator.
It is designed for individuals who:
- Work in, or advise on, construction projects whether as client, designer, or contractor (any tier)
- Are responsible for risk management, finance/ funding, compliance or insurance
- Are involved in the manufacture or supply side
