Rhode Island Legislation Addresses Calibration, Glass Shops

May 3, 2019

A bill is under review in the Rhode Island legislature that “requires that the owner of a vehicle be notified in writing that installation of an aftermarket glass will require re-calibration of safety related systems, for which cost the insurer is responsible.”

The bill, S 850, notes that “it shall not apply to the repair or replacement of motor vehicle glass performed by licensed motor vehicle glass repair shops for non-collision related damage¬†pursuant to chapter 38.5 of title 5; provided, the owner of the vehicle is notified in writing that installation of an aftermarket glass will require re-calibration of safety related systems, for which cost the insurer is responsible; provided, further, that an OEM glass is installed if specifically requested by the vehicle owner.”

The bill was introduced in the Rhode Island Senate on May 1 and referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
