Construction products account for approximately 30-40% of total project cost and is seen as an area where the industry needs to improve. The introduction of European Standards for construction products should mean that European and UK markets will become more open and competitive therefore having an impact on UK product manufacturers. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the progress of the research. It will identify the importance of the construction products sector to the construction industry, explaining the Construction Products Directive and its assumed role in creating a single market in construction products in Europe.
