Officials at the National Glass Association, McLean,Va.,has announced that the association has transferred stewardship of the auto glass standards it has developed to two different entities, effective today [March 4], according to a same day release.The responsibility for ANSI/NGA/NWRA Repair of Laminated Auto Glass Standard will now be under the National Windshield Repair Association, Garrisonville, Va.,which, together with NGA, co-developed the standard. The NWRA will serve as secretariat for the ROLAGS, pending ANSI approval.The stewardship of the Auto Replacement Glass Uniform Labeling of Adhesive draft standard will move to the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards Council, Glen Ellyn, Ill. The ARGULA Committee will continue to function as a separate committee of the AGRSS Council."We have been gratified by the willingness of these two groups to take on the oversight of these important Standards," said Steve Mort, NGA immediate past chairman, in the release. "The efforts to do so have brought about some expansive industry cooperation which we hope will continue.We would especially like to thank Belron Technical for having stepped up to fill a potential void."While the NGA is not currently developing standards, the auto glass industry remains of vital concern to the association, and we continue to offer a wide variety of services and programs for auto glass companies," Mort added. "We look forward to working with both these groups to help serve the industry in the future."
