To effectively compete in the global marketplace, roofing professionals must continuously elevate their levels of knowledge, and roofing materials manufacturers must do the same with technical developments.

Two of the surest ways to achieve higher levels of roofing quality and innovation is through active research and development of consensus-based, voluntary national standards. The latter procedure ensures the principles of openness and due process have been followed and a consensus of those directly and materially affected by the standards has been achieved. SPRI has been at the heart of this process for much of its 30-plus years serving the roofing industry.

Although SPRI continues to represent sheet membrane and component suppliers in the commercial roofing market, the association's role has been significantly expanded since its creation in 1984.
