CGSB Approves Funding To Update Glass Standards

Updating three Canadian glass standards has been made possible through the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB), a federal government organization offering comprehensive standards development, says the Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA). CGSB is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) as a standards development organization. This formal recognition is contingent upon CGSB providing a consensus process. CGSB has selected three glass standards for which the SCC have committed funding to update, with the intent of undertaking a review of the environmental and climate resiliency components in the next editions. The three standards that will be updated by CGSB with funding approval from SCC are CAN/CGSB-12.1-2022, Safety Glazing; CAN/CGSB-12.8-2017 (R2022), Insulating Glass Units; and CAN/CGSB-12.20-M89, Structural Design of Glass for Buildings.
