The Auto Glass Replacement
Safety Standards Council (AGRSS) has decided not to pursue development
of an ANSI standard for auto glass repairs, an idea that was suggested
by Council participant and Independent Glass Association (IGA) chief executive
officer Tim Smale at the council's September 9 meeting in Scottsdale,
Ariz. The decision was made mostly due to the costliness and time involved
in developing an ANSI standard, according to AGRSS chairperson Cindy Minon-Ketcherside,
also the president of JC's Glass in Phoenix.
This isn't the first time the AGRSS Council has decided against pursuing repair. The issue was also voted down in the first year of the Council's existence.
"The general feeling is that AGRSS deals with replacement only and the Council did not wish to expand into repair at this time," Minon added.
