The Auto Glass Safety Council’s (AGSC) AGRSS™ Standards Committee voted at its recent spring meeting to amend the AGRSS™ Standard with language related to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The committee met on May 31 in Irvine, Calif.
The committee voted unanimously to add the following section to the Standard:
“8.9 If the vehicle has an ADAS system or related device, it may require recalibration after any automotive glass replacement. Those engaged in automotive glass replacement electing to provide recalibration services may complete the recalibration by using only the proper equipment, trained personnel and provide verification. If these conditions cannot be met, or if the automotive glass installer does not provide recalibration services, the owner/operator shall be advised, that:
(1) The vehicle has an ADAS system or related device.
(2) After automotive glass replacement, the vehicle may require the recalibration of the ADAS system or related device.
(3) The replacement glass installer will not recalibrate the ADAS system or related device.
(4) There are locations where recalibration may be obtained.
(5) The replacement glass installer is not responsible for the selection of any recalibration location.
Documentation of customer notification shall be kept as record pursuant to 8.7.”
The committee will discuss further changes to the AGRSS Standard at its next meeting, and, once these are finalized, the entire revised Standard will be submitted to ANSI for approval and adoption.
The AGSC AGRSS™ Standards Committee will next meet at Auto Glass Week™ on Wednesday, October 4, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Auto Glass Week will be held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center and Hilton West Palm Beach in West Palm Beach, Fla.
