Auto Glass Safety Council Validation Program
Auto Glass Safety Council Third-Party Validation Review Program
The Auto Glass Safety Council (formerly the AGRSS Council) third-party validation review program provides Auto Glass Safety Council-registered companies the means to validate their compliance to the current AGRSS Standard through independent third-party assessment. This essential process both permits and encourages Auto Glass Safety Council-Registered companies to differentiate themselves from those auto glass installation companies claiming compliance with AGRSS but who fail to undertake the installation procedures or use the proper products that, in turn, create conditions for unsafe auto glass replacements. Auto Glass Safety Council Company Registration and use of third-party validation of compliance is the new benchmark of competence for those rendering auto glass replacement services.
Common Questions and Answers About Validation
Q: What exactly is the Auto Glass Safety Council validation review?
A: The Auto Glass Safety Council validation review is a part of the Auto Glass Safety Council-Registration program. In the past, auto glass installation providers that wished to take part in the Auto Glass Safety Council-Registered company program were required to agree in writing to comply with the AGRSS Standard. They were also required to successfully complete a self-assessment. Now, all AGRSS-registered companies are required to undergo random onsite reviews on a regular basis.
Q: Are you saying that someone is going to come to my shop to see if we are complying with the AGRSS Standard?
A: That’s exactly what the Auto Glass Safety Council is saying.
Q: Why does the Auto Glass Safety Council do this?
A: The Auto Glass Safety Council believes that Auto Glass Safety Council-Registered companies represent the best and most safety-conscious auto glass installation providers in North America. What was lacking in our registration program was the ability to validate that compliance. The validation review by an independent, third-party validation company provides those registered companies with additional value. It shows the companies compliance has been verified. This equates to proven differentiation.
