ANSI/CRRC-1-2012 Standard has been approved
The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) is pleased to announce the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI's) final approval of its ANSI/CRRC-1-2012 Standard after a two-year public review process.
The ANSI/CRRC-1 Standard is part of the CRRC’s mission to implement accurate and credible radiative energy performance ratings for roofing products and provide education and objective support to interested parties. It outlines policies for measuring initial and aged solar reflectance, as well as thermal emittance values of roofing products. The standard was adapted from the CRRC's Program Manual and describes sample preparation and test procedures to ensure consistency in preparation and measurement of roofing properties.
The ANSI/CRRC-1 Standard originally was accredited Nov. 16, 2010. ANSI's Essential Requirements specify that the process for standards development must be a collaborative, balanced and consensus-based approval process. Therefore, every few years, the standard must go through a public review process, the first of which took place from 2011 through 2012, resulting in the ANSI/CRRC-1-2012. The next scheduled cycle is expected to begin in 2014.
