Failing to have your windscreen repaired or replaced could have serious, even fatal results. Head and neck injuries, airbag failure, glass wounds or occupant ejection are very real possibilities. In response, vehicle manufacturer and owner expectations have risen over the years – placing pressure on the auto glass industry and government regulators to instigate a strict and comprehensive system of compliance.
Prior to any work being done, ask if your installer is an AGA member. Ensure they use a high-quality approved direct glazing adhesive for the installation and will install according to all industry standards and direct glazing adhesive manufacturer instructions. The direct glazing adhesive must meet all relevant Australian Standards.
All glazing units fitted into your vehicle must meet the requirements of Australian Design Rule ADR 8/01 and comply with Australian Standard AS/NZS2080:2019 or equivalent International Standards. "AGA uses Standards supplied by SAI Global"
Remember that if a windscreen chip is in the driver’s line of sight - it only has to be bigger than 15mm for your windscreen to fail its registration check.
AGA members can offer advice and assistance as to your best course of action and compliance considerations. Our code of practice requires an understanding of and adherence to all relevant standards
