Standards & Ballots
As of January 1, 2020, the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) unified to form Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA). The combined organization is made up of people like you, people who are concerned about the direction of their company and the industry.
Throughout our long history of industry leadership, FGIA has become recognized for the development of comprehensive standards that provide third-party validation of product performance and quality. We also continue to develop specifications, test methods and technical information reports. In short, we are committed to quality. To promote and ensure the highest standards, we are involved in a multitude of activities that monitor the products and processes in our industry.
FGIA standards are developed in response to the needs of our member companies to solve critical issues in the industry. It takes the interest, energy and experience of our members to help support the development of these standards. It is effective collaboration and communication that make us strong.
FGIA is comprised of a variety of large and small companies, including glass, window, door, skylight, curtain wall and storefront manufacturers, suppliers and test labs. To ensure true member equity, FGIA adheres to the "one company, one vote" policy. All members participate in appropriate voting measures and maintain a fair and equitable position within the association.
This holds true in our balloting process for standards development as well. This adherence to industry consensus has made FGIA the leader in fenestration documents and standards.
