Sustainability assessment for single ply roofing membranes Edition: 1st
NSF International / 01-Apr-2012 / 50 pages

This American National Standard, NSF/ANSI 347 Sustainability Assessment for Single Ply Roofing Membranes Standard, has been developed as part of the ongoing efforts of a number of interested parties to document and improve the sustainability profile of roofing membranes using established and/or advanced scientific principles, practices, materials, and standards. Stakeholders involved in developing the Standard included membrane manufacturers, industry consultants, architects and engineers that specify roofing materials, trade associations, national regulatory agencies that regulate either environmental practices or roofing specifications, and non-governmental organizations. The scope of this standard includes, but is not limited to, Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer (EPDM), Ketone Ethylene Ester (KEE), Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO), and Polyisobutylene (PIB) products. The standard is applicable to products manufactured in one or multiple facilities, and in one or multiple countries.
The purpose of the Sustainability Assessment for Single Ply Roofing Membranes Standard is to establish consistent requirements for sustainable roofing membrane products. These requirements are intended to form the basis of conformity assessment programs, such as third-party certification or registration.
The Sustainability Assessment for Single Ply Roofing Membranes Standard has been designed, in part, to meet the following goals:Facilitate communication of information that is verifiable and accurate about the environmental and social impacts associated with the production and use of Single Ply Roofing Membranes. Provide transparency and offer credibility for manufacturers in making claims of environmental preferability and sustainability, and to harmonize the principles and procedures used to support such claims.Provide framework for assessing the sustainability attributes of Single Ply Roofing Membranes that allows the tracking of incremental changes in the product over time and the comparison of different products that perform similar functions.
These requirements are intended to form the basis of conformity assessment programs, such as third-party certification or registration.
Comments on this Standard should be sent to NSF International at ncss@nsf.org or c/o Standards Department, P.O. Box 130140, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48113-0140, USA or to standards@nsf.org.
