Auto glass calibration legislation, similar to laws passed in recent years in Utah and Arizona, has been introduced in New Hampshire. The bill, HB 304, sponsored by Rep. Tim McGough, has been assigned to the House Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee. The bill imposes requirements regarding ADAS equipped vehicles on auto glass repair or replacement facilities including:
- whether recalibration is required and if it is performed that it is to meet or exceed manufacturer’s specifications;
- provide customer a description of work to be done;
- if recalibration not performed or not performed successfully, provide customer written notice and that the vehicle should be taken to a qualified facility capable of performing recalibration;
- glass facility is not limited to vehicle glass, tooling, equipment or repair procedures dictated or recommended by the vehicle manufacturer but shall recalibrate to meet or exceed manufacturer’s specifications;
- glass facility cannot bill or charge for services not performed in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications.
The Auto Glass Safety Council was afforded the opportunity to work with Rep. McGough on the language of the bill prior to introduction. For text of HB304, CLICK HERE.
