The Auto Glass Safety Council™ (formerly the AGRSS Council) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the safe replacement of auto glass. Auto Glass Safety Council was founded and is supported by companies in the auto glass replacement industry and other stakeholders who keep safe installation as their primary goal.
The Auto Glass Safety Council is an accredited American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards development organization. It has developed the North America’s only auto glass replacement standard, the AGRSS™ Standard (ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS 004-2018 Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standard). The AGRSS Standard addresses procedures, education and product performance. It is a continuous maintenance standard.
The more involved with the AGSC john became, the more interested into the desire to further his own education level.
