Experiences with FM Global guidelines

NRCA continues to receive frequent questions regarding how to comply with FM Global's roofing-related guidelines. Although FM Global has not publicly made any changes to its guidelines in recent months, some new information is available that can help you if you are involved with roofing projects where FM Global guidelines apply.

NRCA survey

Earlier this year, NRCA's Technical Operations Committee surveyed NRCA members regarding their experiences with FM Global guidelines.

NRCA received reports for more than 8,000 roofing projects. Compliance with FM Global guidelines was reported to be specified in about 26 percent of those projects. FM Global was reported to be the property insurer in about 3 percent of those projects.
