The Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) working group have produced an agreed definition of MMC to ensure consistency across the sector and make it easier for all stakeholders to identify particular MMC typologies. These definitions will be launched in the coming weeks.

The group continue working to finalise details of the unified quality assurance platform. This platform will better integrate existing quality assurance and warranty processes to provide a single assurance process for assessing all new technologies used for homes built using MMC and ensure these homes can access insurance and mortgages on the same basis as traditionally built homes. The single assurance platform is expected to be launched in the Spring.
