First Ever Product Category Rule Released for Roof Coating Materials

NSF reveals development for first Product Category Rule (PCR) in North America for roof coating materials alongside the Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA)

Global public health organization NSF International has collaborated with Roof Coatings Manufacturers Association (RCMA) to create the first Product Category Rule (PCR) in North America for roof coating materials.

Products covered in this PCR include fluid-applied and adherent coatings used for roof maintenance or roof repair, or as a component of a roof covering system or roof assembly.

The NSF International National Center for Sustainability Standards (NCSS) utilized an open consultative process to develop the PCR with participation from an expert panel of RCMA members, suppliers, regulatory agencies, environmental organizations and end-users. RCMA is the leading industry voice promoting the benefits of roof coatings and representing manufacturers of asphaltic and solar reflective roof coatings as well as suppliers to the roof coatings industry.

“This product category rule developed by NSF International provides our industry a much needed guideline for calculating and reporting the environmental attributes of roof coatings,” says Jim Kirby, Executive Director of RCMA. “The subsequent life cycle analyses developed by our members using the PCR can provide a basis for improvement to enable reductions in environmental impacts over time. We look forward to the positive impact this will have on the industry and those seeking more sustainable building products.”
