Earlier this year, Tratos hosted to a number of Construction Products Regulation (CPR) workshops in London and Merseyside for those wanting to understand better the details of CPR and how it may affect them.
The Construction Products Regulation assesses the performance of construction products throughout the EU enabling their comparison from different manufacturers in different countries. It deals with the way a product is placed on the market, how its performance is declared and the conformance system of assessment.
The half day workshops were designed to be informative industry events and aimed to help attendees prepare for the 1st July deadline.
Delivered by Tratos’ Technical and Development Director Peter Waterworth, the workshops were extremely well attended with many positive responses from the audiences on the detail of the content and relevance to their specific business.
Peter Waterworth said: “The workshop programme was one of a number of communication tools that Tratos employed as part of its CPR campaign, but ultimately probably one of the most valuable. We have felt for many months that there was a lot of confusion surrounding CPR. The workshops enabled us to tailor content to suit the audience, highlighting their responsibilities to ensure they are CPR compliant.
“The audience was encouraged to raise and discuss issues and concerns in an open forum and I believe attendees appreciated the valuable content, going away more confident in what they needed to know and where gaps existed in their own CPR preparations,” continued Peter.
A number of bespoke workshops, tailored to meet specific industry or sector requirements, were also delivered by the company at client locations. Tratos continues to offer this facility and those interested in attending a future Tratos CPR workshops should contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
