Verified status shows Valcan VitraDual is CCPI compliant

Valcan has achieved the Code for Construction Product Information (CCPI) Verified Status for VitraDual 5754 Grade Products, following on from the company passing the CCPI Organisation Assessment stage of the verification process back in September 2023. 

The CCPI was created to promote an urgent and positive culture and behaviour change in the way the construction product manufacturing industry manages and provides information on their products. It was initiated by the Construction Product Association (CPA) as a direct response to Dame Judith Hackitt’s review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety set up in the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. 

The aim of the CCPI is to raise standards in construction product information and move the industry to a place where product information is clear, accurate, accessible, up-to-date and unambiguous and that clients, specifiers and users will insist on only working with products that conform to CCPI. 

There are two separate Codes – one for Manufacturers and the other for Merchants & Distributors. For Manufacturers there are 11 clauses covering a wide range of matters from responsibility for product information, to accuracy of and clarity of performance claims made, general information and competency. 

Valcan and its VitraDual products have undergone a thorough verification process to achieve CCPI Verified Status. This certification demonstrates its commitment to providing high-quality product information that prioritises product and building safety. 

The status helps assure the public, clients, users, and specifiers that Valcan’s products meet stringent standards and have been thoroughly assessed for compliance. This verification process not only enhances our credibility but also reinforces our dedication to transparency and accountability in the construction industry. 

VitraDual is the first of Valcan’s products to achieve CCPI verification and the company has said it is committed to ensuring that all Valcan products meet the same high standards, with Ceramapanel A1 Fibre Cement Panels going through the same rigorous verification process in the coming months. 

Customers can trust that Valcan products have been thoroughly evaluated and adhere to the highest levels of quality and safety standards.
