BSI Identify is the revolutionary digital service that improves industry safety by solving the product traceability challenge. The ingenious service, which provides unambiguous, persistent product information for the entire supply chain, answers the call for the creation of a 'golden thread' construction process.
Building Safety Golden Thread
The proposal formed part of Dame Judith Hackitt's 'Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety'. It highlights the need for the built environment sector to 'accelerate' the adoption of readily available means of product traceability'. This being enabled by products carrying 'permanent marking' to ensure their ready identification to property stakeholders.
BSI Identify is a game-changing solution that allows supply chain operators quick, easy access to a range of product information. The remote capability is enabled by a Universal Persistent ID Number (UPIN) or a digital link supplied to product manufacturers by BSI Identify. This means that data such as an asset's accreditation, data sheet or user guide is available to anyone via mobile phone or app.
Best Building Practice
Not only beneficial to forging links to crucial industry issues including the golden thread, fire safety, and improved building standards, manufacturers have much to gain by committing to product traceability systems such as BSI Identify. Adopters of the technology will be aligning themselves to best building practice whilst embellishing their renown as a proactive, rather than reactive business.
