The MCRMA was formed in 1990 to support the systems manufacturers in the emerging metal cladding and roofing industry. Since then MCRMA has evolved to encompass the needs of component manufacturer suppliers, system installers, independent roofing and cladding inspectors plus industry support services providers, all providing independent building envelope solutions for metal-based roofing and cladding systems, products and services.
A new publication added to the web site is a metal cladding and roofing supplement which has been published by Roofing Today, in association with MCRMA. The supplement features technical articles on specification, calculations for modern building designs, including for snow and wind loading, and the introduction of a new category of membership for system installers.
The product and services selector enables visitors to quickly and easily locate the manufacturers of specific roofing and cladding systems and components. The selector also lists the independent inspectors and industry support services members of MCRMA.
MCRMA offers an online CPD programme which is open to anyone seeking to develop their knowledge and skills within the metal building envelope sector. The CPDs are flexible and provide ‘learning on the go’ as the course material can be studied both online and offline, on mobiles, tablets and print. There is an online assessment component to verify knowledge and following the successful online completion of a CPD, a certificate can be downloaded for the user’s personal records.
MCRMA has recently published a professional indemnity insurance update advising its inspector members of forthcoming restrictions likely to apply to the inspection of cladding panels. This issue is also likely to affect building control officers. MCRMA is taking up this matter with the appropriate authorities.

As the voice of the industry, MCRMA works closely with a variety of industry bodies and standards committees to develop building envelope solutions and to disseminate best practice across a variety of industry sectors.
