AGSC Offers AGRSS Standard Draft for Review and Comment

The Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) is releasing a review draft of its updated Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standard ™ (AGRSS) before it goes to the American National Standards Institute Inc. (ANSI) for final approval.

The standard addresses six areas critical to the installation process: vehicle assessment; selection of glass and retention systems; installation standards for adhesive bonded glass; installed standards for rubber gasket set glass and additional requirements for all other glass in vehicles; and continuing education for technicians. The standard is developed and maintained by AGSC.

Revisions to the standard in recent months included definitions of terms related to ADAS and information about calibration/recalibration. The standard draft was years in the making and a process requiring a focus on details. “We as a committee have known about ADAS and the calibration issue for years and dedicated our efforts in addressing this important technological advancement,” says Bob Beranek, AGSC AGRSS Standards Committee chair. As a living document, the standard may be amended in the future with the evolution of automotive technology.
