Products are processed, finished items that are offered for sale. That is, they are manufactured combinations of materials and perhaps other products, processed to create items such as doors, windows, light fittings, and so on.
They are generally distinguished from ‘materials’ which are raw, unprocessed substances such as sand, salt, and so on, and from ‘services’ which are activities such as consultation, maintenance, installation, or sometimes the provision of accommodation.
The Construction Products Regulation defines a ‘construction product’ as; ‘…any product or kit which is produced and placed on the market for incorporation in a permanent manner in construction works or parts thereof and the performance of which has an effect on the performance of the construction works with respect to the basic requirements for construction works.'
