Rhode Island References AGSC in Business Regulations

May 22, 2017

The state of Rhode Island recently revised the portion of its business regulations for those engaged in motor vehicle glass repair (section 161-RICR-300-5-3) and has demonstrated that it recognizes the importance of auto glass safety and the work of the Auto Glass Safety Council™ (AGSC). It references the AGSC and the ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS™ Standard in several points.

The DBR requires that licensees ensure that their technicians renew and update certifications every three years or as required by AGSC or equivalent provider to stay current with industry safety standards and changes in technology.

The DBR goes on to require that “licensees shall implement safety standards for motor vehicle glass repair and replacement that are consistent with: the original equipment manufacturer instructions and directions; the current Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (“AGRSS”); and the current Repair of Laminated Automotive Glass Standard (“ROLAGS”).”
