IGMA and IGCC Move Closer to a Harmonized Approach to North American Certification

At the meeting of the Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC), held August 21-23, 2007 in Minneapolis, the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Association (IGMA) and IGCC Certification Programs made significant progress in streamlining and standardizing the certification program for North American for the insulating glass (IG) industry.

The associations have been working to harmonize the two programs since Fall 2004.

Both programs have developed and implemented a Gas Content Initial and After Weathering (GCIA). The guidelines for certification of triple glazed units and test specimens were standardized between the two programs when IGCC adopted the IGMA Insulating Glass Manufacturing Quality Procedures (TM-4000-02) as the minimum requirement for the program's quality assurance program. The quality procedures requirement will be phased in over approximately the next 18 months.
