Construction Product Identifier event

Date: 10 October 2016
Venue: The Law Society, 113 Chancery Lane, London, WC2A 1PL

CPI follow up event

Join us and senior industry leaders at our Construction Products Identifier event to hear the latest updates from the CPI project and discover the next steps.

We began a major collaborative research project in October 2015 to look at the feasibility and usefulness of a unique and persistent Construction Product Identifier (CPI) that could revolutionize the digital identification of construction products

The research project was introduced at our CPI event, held in February along with partners, the Construction Products Association and the NBS, by Shirley Bailey-Wood, Director of Information Solutions at BSI, and Peter Caplehorn, Policy Director and Deputy Chief Executive at Construction Products Association

The research allowed us to establish how a common identification system for construction products could benefit the industry as well as define what useful information is held within a Digital Object Identifier (DOI). After the success of the event and the interest generated from industry, it is clear that an identification system for construction products would be beneficial. So, along with the NBS and Construction Products Association, we have now started work to develop this system.  

Ahead of the pilot CPI system being created in the new year, we have produced a Proof of Concept (PoF) version. By attending this event you will hear about the PoF and the feedback generated from the usability testing.
