Why should I consider GGF Conciliation?

The GGF is independent and impartial. Our overriding principle is to act as neutral and unbiased administrator to help parties involved in a dispute by steering negotiations towards an amicable conclusion.

We endeavour to keep all parties informed so as to create a situation whereby a mutually agreed solution to an existing dispute is reached.

How to request GGF Conciliation

If you have raised your concerns with the GGF Member company in writing and it has not addressed the issues for you, please write to the GGF Conciliation Manager at

Alternative dispute resolution

The GGF has an independent arbitration scheme run by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

The Glazing Arbitration Scheme (TGAS) is an independent ADR (alternative dispute resolution) scheme, which is the primary ADR scheme for the Glass & Glazing industry, plus other glazing related and home improvement products.

Non-glazing disputes

For non-glazing disputes, recommends contacting Citizens Advice. The Citizens Advice consumer service provides free, confidential and impartial advice on consumer issues, including information about your rights when buying goods and services.
