Accredited Company Program
The Australian Glass and Window Association (AGWA) is the peak Association representing over 1,000 member companies in the glazing and fenestration industry. We endorse compliant, sustainable and fit-for-purpose products and provide services to members that support their efforts to operate successfully.
The Accredited Company Program underpins several core objectives of AGWA, including to:
- Drive product conformity and compliance.
- Provide advice and support to members.
- Facilitate technical capability and knowledge.
- Develop relevant skill-sets through training.
- Influence industry and product sustainability.
- Advocate to governments and regulators.
- Promote to members, stakeholders, the community and consumers.
AGWA is a NATA Accredited Inspection Agency and undertakes annual independent audits of compliance to provide members with the means to demonstrate product performance and compliance with relevant Australian Standards.
Why Accreditation Matters
The AGWA Accredited Company Program provides a comprehensive framework to develop and demonstrate the skills, experience, safety and integrity of a company’s production systems by formally recognising and promoting competence and expertise in window production, glazing and related activities. It makes it easier for companies doing the right thing to stand out from other operators. The program has three pillars to be accredited to: Compliance; Safety; and Skills and Training.
AGWA Accreditation is about confidence – for members, consumers and industry – that the products supplied and installed comply with Australian Standards and conform to the National Construction Code (NCC).
