One of the things the auto glass repair and services industry looked forward to for 2012 was the name change of the well-known AGRSS Council to the Auto Glass Safety Council, a change that would be effective immediately on the first day of 2012. The former AGRSS (Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards) Council officials announced it back in the middle of September last year, right in the middle of Auto Glass Week in Memphis. At the time, it was suggested that it would mark a formal commitment to covering a wider range of concerns regarding the industry for the organization.
The non-profit group formerly known as the AGRSS has contributed a great deal to the auto glass repair and services industry in the country. It is actually accredited by the country’s national standards institute (the ANSI) as an organization dedicated to the development of a formal set of standards for its chosen field. In fact, the AGRSS was instrumental in developing the currently practiced set of standards for auto glass replacement safety, also commonly referred to as the AGRSS Standard. However, as the president of the organization, Debra Levy, remarked at the time that the name change was announced, the group actually did more than focus on the development of standards, so the old name was becoming slightly restrictive in terms of what it implied.
Levy noted that changing the group’s name to the Auto Glass Safety Council would see the name being a more accurate reflection of the organization's true aims and central purpose. Levy said that the Council was not only dedicated to the development of standards for the actual auto glass repair procedures and tools but also other relevant concerns in the industry, all with the ultimate goal of achieving safety for consumers and car owners. Some activities Levy mentioned that the Council was either already doing or interested in doing were audit works for the industry, validation, certifications for auto glass repair technicians and shops, and, of course, education.
The note about certification was a particularly salient point at the time: the Council had just announced, no more than a few days earlier, its purchase of the rights to one of the most famous and established accreditation programs in the auto glass repair industry. To be precise, it had acquired the National Glass Association’s certification programs, which had been in use in the industry for well over two decades. The operational transfer of the programs took place last year as well, with the Council saying that its acquisition of the certification program was an indication of how significant certification was and would continue to be in the auto glass repair and replacement industry.
