The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC) (formerly the AGRSS® Council Inc.) has seen major growth in recent months in interest in implementing the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS®) beyond North America.
“In every instance those reaching out to the AGSC have told us that AGRSS® stood out as the single best mechanism to introduce validations to their nations to greatly improve installation safety,” says David Rohlfing, AGSC vice president. “One representative said that, ‘Basically no one understands how important a windscreen is to the structural integrity of the vehicle and therefore how important correct installation is.W e want to highlight this and hopefully they will have no option but to pay attention.’”
The AGSC is working closely with those who’ve reached out to the organization looking for help in implementing the standard in their respective countries, according to Rohlfing. “We look forward to the prospect of the Standard being utilized by those auto glass repair and replacement companies and/or associations who have a keen interest in elevating safe installations for consumers by utilizing AGRSS®,” he says. “The AGSC would be happy to work with any company or organization from any country that has an interest in utilizing AGRSS® to promote safe installations.”
