Organizational Overview

The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) maintains a credible and unbiased, third-party rating program for measuring and reporting the radiative properties of roof surfaces. The CRRC publishes the measured solar reflectance and thermal emittance values in their online Rated Products Directory and on CRRC Product Labels for use by roof specifiers, codes officials, architects, contractors, engineers, and building owners. Radiative property values are measured by CRRC Accredited Independent Testing laboratories, not by manufacturers.

Scope of Standards Developing Activity

CRRC develops standards for the following product scopes:

CRRC has submitted an application to become an ANSI-Accredited Standards Developer. The CRRC intends to submit a standard for the initial and aged measurements of solar reflectance and thermal emittance of roofing products as an American National Standard.
