GLASS LABELLING

Labelling of glass is an important compliance aspect of AS/NZ 1288. AGGA has produced a range of glass labels for members to purchase that can be used on most types of glass. These labels include the company name and are only available to AGGA Members, so they also serve an important role in promoting AGGA Accreditation status.

Section 5 of AS 1288 requires that ALL safety glass is legibly marked in accordance with
AS/NZS 2208.
