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).

The Pillars of Accreditation

Compliance

Provide Accredited Companies with the means to independently demonstrate product performance and compliance with the National Construction Code, Australian Standard (AS) 2047 Windows and external glazed doors in buildings, Australian Standard (AS) 1288 Glass in buildings and other relevant Australian Standards.

Skills and Training

Ensure Accredited Companies have the technical ‘know-how’ to achieve consistent and reliable performance and provide a continuing professional development program that allows Accredited Companies to maintain the currency of their skills and improve competency within their workforce.

Safety

Assist Accredited Companies in providing a safe and healthy workplace for all employees and promoting safety and well-being in the workplace.
