GANA Webinar on New CPSC Certification Rules Available to Entire Industry
February 3, 2010

The Glass Association of North America (GANA) announced that its webinar last week on the new certification and labeling requirements imposed by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is now available for purchase on its website. 

On February 9, 2009, the CPSC postponed the date for compliance with the CPSC’s new certification rules, applicable to architectural glazing materials installed in hazardous locations, until February 10, 2010. Those rules require, for the first time, manufacturer certifications of compliance with CPSC 16 CFR 1201, the federal safety standard for architectural glazing materials, to include the business address and telephone number of the safety glazing materials fabricator and the identity of and contact information for those responsible for maintaining testing records.  

During the webinar, GANA general counsel Kim Mann provided an overview of the existing certification requirements compared to the ones that go into effect next week.  John Kent, administrative manager of the Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC), also illustrated one technique and method that SGCC members will begin using February 11, 2010 to comply with the new CPSC certification rules.

The webinar is available for download or streaming for only $4.95 to anyone in the industry.
