Advisory Committee for Roofsafety

RIDBA is a member of the Advisory Committee for Roofsafety (ACR), the UK’s leading authority on roof work and roof safety, dedicated to making working on roofs safer. Established in 1998, the committee is made up of nominees from trade associations and organisations involved in roof work.

As well as defining the UK’s only test (recognised by the Health & Safety Executive), which determines the non-fragility status of roofing products, producing publications about safe working practices on both fragile and non-fragile surfaces and other roof safety issues, the Committee also operates a complaints procedure to settle disputes about the validity of non-fragility claims made by manufacturers, installers and suppliers of roofing products.

RIDBA is involved in developing the ACR roofing advice documents:
