AGSC Issues Recalibration Guidance

The Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) has recently released a checklist for use with vehicles that require an Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) recalibration after having an auto glass replacement.

“Proper calibration of the ADAS system in a vehicle after auto glass replacement is integral to the safety of the vehicle,” said Jacques Navant, AGSC ADAS Committee chairperson. “Our committee developed this guidance, in the form of a checklist, to help everyone replacing glass in vehicles equipped with ADAS complete the recalibration process properly.”


The checklist includes a variety of sections, including pre-replacement and post-replacement procedures covering static, dynamic and combination systems.


AGSC members can obtain a copy of the checklist in the member resources section of the AGSC website or by emailing Kathy Bimber at kbimber@agsc.org.


The checklist is available to non-members on the council’s website.


“AGSC members put the safety of their customers first and making sure an ADAS system is properly recalibrated is an important part of that safety protocol,” said Bob Beranek, Standards Committee chairperson. “We expect recalibration procedures soon will be included in the ANSI AGSC Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) as well and that those procedures will cross-reference the check list,” he added.
