  Representative organizations

The 2017 edition of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440, NAFS, the latest product of the ongoing effort to harmonize standards in North America, is available for online purchasing from the American Architectural Manufacturers Association, Canadian Standards Association or Window & Door Manufacturers Association.
