What is NSF/ANSI 347?
NSF/ANSI 347 is the leading consensus standard for evaluating and certifying sustainable attributes of single ply roofing membranes over their entire product life cycle.
NSF Sustainability provides certification to the NSF/ANSI 347 Sustainability Assessment for Single Ply Roof Membranes. Single Ply Roofing Membranes, as defined by this standard, include, but are not limited to, membranes produced from EPDM, KEE, PVC, TPO, and PIB products.
The NSF/ANSI 347 Sustainability Standard for Single Ply Membranes provides objective, neutral and transparent data to use to compare and assess the sustainable nature of different products. Based on life-cycle assessment principles, NSF/ANSI 347 employs an easy-to-use point system to evaluate roofing membrane products against established prerequisite requirements, performance criteria and quantifiable metrics in five key areas:
1. Product design
2. Product manufacturing
3. Membrane durability
4. Corporate governance
Certification levels are based on the following point scale:
Conformant Minimum 35 points
Silver Minimum 45 points
Gold Minimum 56 points
Platinum Minimum 75 points
Platinum indicates the highest score and the highest certification earned.
