AGRSS Names Orion as Independent Validation Firm

THE AUTO GLASS REPLACEMENT Safety Standard (AGRSS) Council has named Orion Registrar Corp. as its new third-party validation firm. The company, which is based in Arvada, Colo., was chosen by the AGRSS board of directors on October 15 after a lengthy selection process by its accreditation committee and has been approved by the group’s board.

“They’re our partners,” Tompkins said, introducing Orion president Paul Burck, program development director Penny Ouellette and marketing coordinator Lori Correia. The firm was introduced during the International Auto Glass Safety (AGRSS) Conference on November 3 in Las Vegas (see related story on page 26).

Ouellette also spoke to the statistics behind the model, while Burck addressed the company’s nature and quelled many fears. Under this model, the AGRSS-registered population would be broken up by location—for a total of 1,600—and would be divided into geographic clusters of ten. Each year, some of these clusters would be validated/audited.
