FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What is the Building Products Information Rating (BPI Rating)?
A: BPI Rating is a searchable online database of information about building materials and products. It has been designed to offer architects, designers and specifiers a “one-stop-shop” for the information that might be required to assess a building product or material for specification into a building project. BPI Rating provides information on the Environmental, Social, Economic, Resilience, Compliance, Performance of building products and materials as well as collating reviews and ratings. The concept is developed through an innovation process incorporating industry engagement to ascertain industry needs. The process has resulted in a specification for BPI Rating, which has been industry end user driven.
BPI Rating is brought to you by the Insurance Council of Australia, Edge Environment and Comply Flow to help building professionals and homeowners find, evaluate and compare building products.
