TGAS - The Glazing Arbitration Scheme


TGAS The Glazing Arbitration SchemeThis Scheme applies to applications for arbitration made to the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) in respect of disputes between ‘traders’ (that is, member companies of the Glass & Glazing Federation (“GGF”) or registered firms of the Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme (“FENSA”) and their customers. Prior to the institution of arbitration proceedings the Parties must attempt to settle the dispute through GGF’s conciliation procedure (if a GGF member company) or through FENSA’s complaint process (if a FENSA registered firm) for at least 40 working days. If the conciliation procedure fails to resolve the dispute the Parties may proceed to arbitration.

To commence arbitration proceedings, a joint application by the Parties must first be submitted to CEDR through the GGF where the trader is a GGF member company, or through FENSA where the trader is a FENSA registered firm.
