CPI Governance

CPI consults and supports its Members through standing committees and sector bodies

The ultimate governing body of the CPI is its Council, comprising senior representatives from its membership and from each sector of the supply chain. CPI Council’s responsibilities include not only the overall strategy of CPI but also membership criteria; issue and policy priorities; and budgets and subscription levels.

CPI consults and supports its Members through standing committees and sector bodies which are responsible to CPI Council. Standing committees deal with the many and varied issues facing the industry and with the focused range of services provided to Members. Sector bodies are governed by their own sector councils and are responsible for approving sectoral policy on sector specific issues and for overseeing the work of sectoral committees.

CPI’s constitution (Articles of Association and Byelaws) is available here.

  1. one senior representative from each of its Members, who together provide over 80% of CPI’s membership subscription;
