NRCA's UL certification for compliance with ANSI/SPRI ES-1
NRCA maintains a certification with Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) for compliance
of specific edge metal flashings with ANSI/SPRI ES-1. NRCA's UL certification applies
to specific edge metal flashings included in The NRCA Roofing Manual fabricated
by specific NRCA members, referred to as "authorized fabricators," who subscribe
and adhere to NRCA's and UL's process for certification. Edge metal flashings to
which NRCA's UL certification applies bear a UL classification mark label, typically
applied to the unexposed backside of the flashing system.
NRCA's UL certification for compliance with ANSI/SPRI ES-1 provides for third-party
verification of compliance by a code-approved test agency. Although such third-party
verification is not a specific requirement of the International Building Code and
may not be required by project specification requirements, it does provide credible,
independent means of showing specific shop-fabricated edge metal flashings comply
with ANSI/SPRI ES-1.
