FL House Bill Mandates Proof of FBC Product Approval
The glazing industry and its related associations are applauding the steps taken by Florida legislators that protect consumers in that state from fraudulent hurricane protection. Florida HB 849, signed on July 1, makes it a violation of the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, to advertise, sell, offer, provide, distribute or market any product as hurricane, windstorm or impact-resistant unless it is in compliance with the provisions for product approval in the Florida Building Code.
