The National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers (NARM) has become a member organisation of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), in a move to create a more ‘joined up’ UK roofing industry.

The new arrangement will facilitate close and regular communication, in which product manufacturers, designers and installers are able to speak with a unified voice to regulators.

NFRC Director James Talman, said: “I am very pleased to welcome NARM members to NFRC. NARM and NFRC have worked well together in the past, but this formal link will strengthen the ties between these two active and influential trade associations to the benefit of the whole Roofing Industry.  

I look forward to working more closely with NARM to address the challenges we face today to maintain practical standards and effective regulation in a fast changing world and to ensure we have a workforce competent to deliver safely the quality we need on-site.”

Members of NARM will now be listed as Supplier Members of NFRC. NFRC will now adopt to NARM guidelines on all matters relating to rooflights, whilst NARM member companies will abide by NFRC rules. NARM will have a permanent seat on the NFRC’s Roofing Suppliers’ Group which reports directly to the main board. 

NARM Chairman Jon Shooter added: “This is another step in ensuring our position as the recognised voice of the rooflight industry both domestically and in Europe. We look forward to welcoming James Talman to our next quarterly NARM meeting in May, at which we will be progressing a number of initiatives currently under discussion.”
