How Can the CRRC Rated Product Logo Be Used?

Licensees with rated roof products may use the CRRC Rated Product Logo on product-specific marketing materials; product-specific webpage on the Licensee’s website; and/or on specification or data sheets for the rated product.

When using the Rated Product Logo in marketing brochures and technical or specification documents that include multiple products, the Rated Product Logo must be placed adjacent to the roofing product specification or illustration of the roofing product that has received the CRRC product rating authorization (see below example).

Licensees are also permitted to use the Rated Product Logo on the product packaging as long as the product has an active CRRC rating. Please note the California Energy Commission will not accept the Rated Product Logo in lieu of the CRRC Product Label for Title 24 compliance.

The Rated Product Logo may be grouped with other organizations’ logos only when the following criteria are satisfied:

  1. The Rated Product Logo is a standalone image that does not appear connected to any other logo.

  2. The other logos may not be performance or certification marks (like LEED or ENERGY STAR). If performance or certification marks (including the CRRC Product Label) are located in the same margin as the Rated Product Logo, then there must be a clear separation between those marks and the Rated Product Logo so that the CRRC Logo is not construed as a product certification mark (see below example).

The Rated Product Logo should not be placed on general company brochures if the CRRC rated product cannot be differentiated from products that are not rated by the CRRC. The Rated Product Logo should only be used on brochures that promote the rated product itself.

A Licensee may opt to use the CRRC Product Label for rated roofing products in place of or along with the Rated Product Logo.
