One Insulating Glass Certification Program for North America

The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) and the Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC) are pleased to announce that the certification programs offered by each organization have been combined into a single program.

This process which started with an announcement in June 2004 that the two organizations would be working closely together to harmonize their respective program requirements cumulated into a formal license agreement signed by the IGMA and IGCC Presidents, Roger Skluzacek (Viracon) and Ray Wakefield (Trulite Industries) during the IGMA Annual Conference February 3, 2009.

Synonymous with the harmonization of the Canadian CGSB 12.8 and US ASTM E773/E774 standards resulting in the ASTM E 2188, E 2189 and E2190 for insulating glass testing, IGMA and IGCC have worked together diligently to develop a single set of program requirements representing the more stringent requirements of each program to offer insulating glass manufacturers one program labeled with IGCC-IGMA trademark capitalizing on the strong market recognition of both programs in Canada and the US.

Margaret Webb, IGMA Executive Director stated that “IGMA and IGCC have set the bar for insulating glass certification in North America as well as setting an example of what can be accomplished when two organizations work closely together for the benefit of the entire industry.”

John Kent, IGCC Administrative Manager added "Both certification processes were scrutinized over several years with the result being a better single process for the certification of Insulating Glass. Of paramount concern for both organizations was maintaining ultimate control of certification as the responsibility of the IGCC Board of Governors with its balance of 50% industry representation and 50% public interest representation. This was accomplished."
