New York proposes bill to create auto glass safety standards
“A bill has been introduced to the assembly that will effect New Yorkers in the auto glass replacement industry. The proposed bill, number A01965, outlines safety guidelines to be followed and also provides definitions to ensure general safety. The bill would also bring New York state auto glass replacement standards in line with federal safety standards.
The bill defines The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as those to follow. It also mentions all vehicle assessments will take place before auto glass replacements. Auto glass installers will not complete the assessment if there are any compromising retention system conditions; vehicle owners will be notified if this arises with their car. Retention systems are also to be produced under documented quality assurance standards. The bill also states all glass products must meet ANSI Z26.1 requirements as required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.”
