Compliance

The AGGA Accredited Company Program has a number of compliance requirements that must be met by participants. These requirements ensure that companies are meeting all regulations and clients will have peace of mind.

Compliance Requirements
Insurance

All Accredited Companies will be required to have in place appropriate Public Liability insurance. Typically this provides coverage of at least $10 million.

AGGA has a partnership with AB Phillips who have developed an insurance product that is competitively priced and also provides a level of coverage not available elsewhere. Negotiations are also underway to offer premium discounts to companies who have met all of the requirements of the Accredited Company Program. 

For further information about the AB Phillips insurance offering email info@abphillips.com.au or call 1300 242 136 to speak to an AB Phillips representaative.

Glass Labelling

Accredited companies are required to label all safety glass they install in accordance with the AS/NZ 1288 standard.

Labelling of glass is an important compliance aspect of AS/NZ 1288, and one which is not well policed by building surveyors or building owners/managers. AGGA has produced a range of glass labels for members to purchase that can be used on most types of glass. These labels include the company name and are only available to Accredited Companies, so they also serve an important role in promoting the company's Accredited status.

When Accredited Companies are audited by the AGGA, the compliant use of glass labels will also be part of this audit. Non-compliance to glass labelling could potentially lead to loss of Accredited Company status.

AGGA sells appropriate labels to Accredited Companies that include company details and accreditation number. You can download the AGGA Label order form on this page or contact AGGA: agga@agga.asn.au or call 03 8669 0174

Glazing Certificates

The AGGA Glazing Certificate is a central part of the Accredited Company Program. The certifcates will:

  • Be issued by Accredited Companies at the completion of jobs
  • Provide assurance that work complies with Standard AS/NZ 1288
  • Provide customers with a third party (AGGA) to mediate on complaints
  • Will be promoted to building certifiers, local government and consumers as the 'must-have' for all glazing work
  • Take less than a minute to issue via web, tablet or smartphone
  • Provide the option to store additional job data in your own job database

Accredited Companies will only be required to use the AGGA glazing certificate when a client requests a certificate. The online AGGA glazing certificate system is available only to Accredited Companies and provides a reputable glazing certificate that is backed by the association. The AGGA will mediate complaints in regards to projects with AGGA glazing certificates and ensure standards are adhered to. We encourage Accredited Companies to use the AGGA glazing certification system to reinforce your Accredited Company status.

A minimum 2 (two) year warranty must be provided on all work. This warranty should include assurance that all materials used meet relevant Australian Standards.
