The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) represent UK companies who manufacture, supply, and install glazing products. With Her Majesty’s Government recognition, the GGF plays an integral role in overseeing the implementation of new industry standards. Subsidiaries of the GGF include FENSA (Fenestration Self-Assessment scheme) and BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council). Both these well-known organisations ensure windows, doors, and glazing products are made and installed to meet the requirements of energy efficiency and security standards.

One of the main aims of the GGF is to promote best practice across the UK double glazing industry. By promoting its members, it can set high quality standards for all technical glazing specifications and installation practices. This in turn helps to protect homeowners when buying glazing products and services.
The GGF is also involved in local and national politics. Members regularly provide expert advice on industry policy and legislation across the fenestration and wider construction industry. Through the GGF, the glazing industry is given a political voice when decisions are made which may impact industry working practices.
