Production of safety glass in Australia is governed by several rigid Australian Standards. AS/NZ 2208-1996 governs safety glass in Buildings and AS/NZ 2080-1996 governs glass in land vehicles. In order to gain certification, 1st Glass is randomly audited each year by an outside independent certifier. To maintain certification throughout the year, 1st Glass is required to perform a break test on a piece of glass each and every hour of operation and keep records of each break test for random scrutiny by the authorities.
