Highlights: Technical • Training • Events • Sustainability

 

As many of you are aware we are right in the thick of it with our NCC 2022 consultation. Over the last couple of weeks we have held several working group meetings and webinars to communicate the contents of the draft and what it may mean for our industry. While many of you provided feedback on this to help us sculpt our response to this critical industry update, there is still time to provide further perspective. Therefore, if you have any concerns, please reach out to the technical team [email protected] in the coming weeks so that we can look to integrate your thoughts into our overall industry response.

As always, you can find updates from our team members below, and I would encourage you to take the time to read them.

Kind Regards,

Clinton Skeoch
CEO & Executive Director
Australian Glass & Window Association
