AGSC to Update Repair Standard

The National Windshield Repair Division (NWRD) of the Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) has announced the formation of a new ANSI committee to develop a standard for windshield repair. The standard will be the successor to the Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard (ROLAGS), which was recently provided to the AGSC by the NWRA when it welcomed members of the association into its Council.

“We expect to draw heavily on the ROLAGS Standard,” said NWRD president, Troy Mason. “Though [the] AGSC now owns the ROLAGS Standard, [the] AGSC has its own systems and procedures in place for standards-setting and we want to make sure the Repair Standard exists in accordance with those procedures.”

Mason added that the committee, tentatively titled the Laminated Auto Glass Repair Safety Standard (LAGRSS) is seeking members and anyone interested in being involved should contact Kathy Bimber at kbimber@glass.com for an application. The first meeting will be held on Thursday, September 5 from 7-8:30 a.m. at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis during Auto Glass Week, interested participants are welcome.
