The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has released an updated certification document describing recommendations for compliance with minimum Quality Management System (QMS) requirements for AAMA Certification Programs Licensees.
AAMA QMSUG-1-21, Recommendations for Compliance with Minimum Quality Management System Requirements for AAMA Certification Programs Licensees, walks licensees through the creation of a QMS, a formalized system that documents processes, procedures, and responsibilities for achieving quality policies and objectives.
Product certification has become a staple for enabling objective appraisal of performance and compliance with codes and regulations for a wide range of products. A trusted certification label indicates that a product has been verified as conforming to regulatory or code-mandated standards through independent testing and assessment.
