AGGA Accredited Glaziers
Most glazing problems occur right from the outset. They generally stem from the inappropriate selection and installation of glass, often by unqualified tradespeople.
You may find it hard to believe, but today there exist untrained, poorly qualified, unaccredited glaziers working in an industry that demands extreme expertise and care in the specification and installation of glass. This applies to all types of projects – from the simplest residential replacement work to the most complex commercial fit outs.
You may put lives at risk if you don’t insist on using the services of an accredited glazing expert – a skilled tradesperson who knows and works to the Standard AS 1288. Accidents can happen, with costly and possibly life-threatening consequences.
You could be legally liable for sizeable damages associated with incorrect glazing unless you have taken due care (click on the Case Law and Legal Obligations links below for further info). All glass installed in buildings must comply with the relevant Australian Building Standard. It is strongly recommended that you take every step to ensure these measures are taken and that you demand to view proof of compliance.

in accordance with the Standard.

Glass & Glazing Best Practice - What is an accredited glazier?
The AGGA has introduced an accredited installer system for the glazing of safety and laminated safety glass. All members undergo training and testing of their knowledge of the Australian Standard for Selection and Installation of Glass in Buildings (AS 1288:2006).
These installers are skilled tradespeople who have agreed to a set code of conduct and who have qualified to apply an AGGA certification label to any laminated safety glazing undertaken.
The introduction of photographic identification cards for the AS 1288 competent glazier has changed the way the building industry and consumers relate to glass and glazing.
