CRRC Elections Update
The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) held their Annual General Membership meetings virtually ‎June 15-16, concluding by announcing the CRRC Board of Directors election results. RCMA ‎would like to congratulate the individuals from RCMA member companies elected to the Board of ‎Directors: Hal Leland (Western Colloid) and James Kirby (GAF).‎

RCMA looks forward to continued opportunities to work with the CRRC Board of Directors on ‎areas of mutual interest to the roof coatings industry.‎
Technical Affairs Committee Update
In April, RCMA staff participated in the ICC Committee Action Hearings (CAH) over three weeks, with daily hearings usually lasting 12 hours per day. The results, overall, were favorable to RCMA’s interests, and staff is currently drafting public comments for review and approval by the RCMA Board of Directors to submit before the July deadline.

In May, the California Energy Commission released its Express Terms 2022 Energy Code, Title 24 Parts 1 and 6 document, which included the requested action from RCMA’s previously submitted public comment to add ASTM D6083/D6083M-21 Standard Specification for Liquid Applied Acrylic Coatings Used in Roofing back into the code (specifically in Section 110.8.(i).4.B with other coating related standards). Thank you to all the members involved in getting this standard renewed and assisting staff to develop the public comment submitted for this change.

In June, ASTM Committees D08 (Roofing & Waterproofing) and E05 (Fire Standards) held their meetings virtually. While both committees had full schedules, the primary takeaway for RCMA is that the next balloting cycle (July-Nov) is expected to have multiple ballots of interest to RCMA members from subcommittee D08.09. Staff will monitor the ballots released and provide synopses.

Staff continues to work on developing the RCMA Training Program Modules and to work with our vendor to complete RCMA’s EPDs. The RCMA TAC is reviewing the RCMA Coatings Technical Note Cold Weather Application Tips for Roof Coatings and developing a new draft Coatings Technical Note with the working title of Hot Weather Application Tips for Roof Coatings.
