The National Construction Product Register (NCPR) is an initiative of NATSPEC, a national not-for-profit organisation whose objective is to improve the construction quality and productivity of the built environment through leadership of information. NATSPEC is impartial and is not involved in advocacy or policy development. The NCPR is for assistance, not assurance. The threshold at which product conformity is deemed to have been demonstrated must be determined by a risk assessment process which considers the likelihood and consequence of product failure.



About the NCPR

The National Construction Product Register (NCPR) website provides information and educational materials on construction product conformity and related topics. It is developed and maintained by Construction Information Systems Limited (NATSPEC).

Through the NCPR, NATSPEC aims to raise awareness in the construction industry of the importance of product conformity and help industry mitigate the risk of non-conforming building products.
