NWRA Board, ROLAGS™ Committee Meet as Auto Glass Week™ 2014 Begins

The NWRA's board of directors met today, along with the ROLAGS Committee.

The NWRA’s board of directors met today, along with the ROLAGS Committee.

While sponsors rushed to the Baltimore Convention Center to set up their booths, Auto Glass Week™ began with association meetings, including a meeting of the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA) board of directors. One of the key topics up for discussion was the development of an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard, windshield quality, training and education.

The NWRA is working to create a new Windshield Repair Break Identification Standard. The standard will also be known as “ANSI BSR/NWRA BIS 001-201x.” The goal of the new standard will be to classify breakage in windshields and automotive glass. This will be NWRA’s second standard developed under the guidance of the ANSI. The first, the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard (ROLAGS™), was approved by ANSI in June 2007. Keith Beveridge of Novus was elected the chairperson.

“We welcome participation from the industry in the development of this standard for classification of types of breakage in automotive glass,” noted Beveridge.

Campfield invited members to bring in photos showing examples of the various breaks they run into in their day-to-day business.

It’s not too late to register for Auto Glass Week™. Registration opens at the Baltimore Convention Center Tuesday at 7 a.m. Free trade show passes are available here.

Several committees of the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) also met today. Stay tuned to glassBYTEs.com for more from these meetings, and from AGSC’s half-day membership meeting, which will be held tomorrow.
