American National Standard: ANSI Z97.1-2004, for safety glazing materials used in buildings-safety performance specifications and methods of test.

This standard establishes the specifications and methods of test for the safety properties of safety glazing materials (glazing materials designed to promote safety and to reduce or minimize the likelihood of cutting and piercing injuries when the glazing materials are broken by human contact) as used for all building and architectural purposes.

The purpose of this standard is to prescribe the safety performance characteristics of safety glazing materials. This standard affords a basis for; (l) safety standards for adoption in regulations by federal, state, and local regulatory bodies; and (2) for use by building code officials, architects, designers, specifiers and others as a reference standard. Approval of a material under this standard constitutes acceptance of its safety characteristics and the retention of those characteristics. It is not to be construed as appraisal of its durability or appearance as a glazing material.
