AGRSS Council Issues Alert Regarding Recent Recalls

The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) Council has issued an alert to its registered shops regarding the recent recall of tempered glass parts from DOT No. 430 and DOT No. 628. Hangzhou Safety Glazing Ltd. holds DOT No. 430 and Hebei Tongyong Glass Inc. holds DOT No. 628.

Safelite Auto Glass/Belron US issued the original recall for certain tempered part numbers from DOT No. 430 in December, and earlier this month Process Polymers Development (PPD) in Clinton Township, Mich., issued a recall for a part from both manufacturers. Both recalls were issued voluntarily via the National High Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In the AGRSS Alert, issued earlier today, the Council warns registered companies that they "should make every effort to recall any glass [involved in the recall] that they have installed."

The Council goes on quote the Standard, which says, "All glass parts must be traceable to the installation by a DOT and part number."

"Your documentation of these DOT numbers and part numbers on your work orders should allow you to identify the Lexus RX 300 for the 1999 to 2003 model years, which may have had the subject glass installed," the alert continues.
