With over 560 members, the majority of which are small to medium sized, the Australian Window Association is run as a co-operative – Eligible Members have one vote irrespective of size and financial contribution.
A full-time Executive Director manages the Association which has a full-time staff of ten. The Association Strategic Plan is monitored and revisited by an elected Management Committee via bi-monthly and quarterly meetings. All states have representation on the Association’s Board of Directors.

The Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) rates the energy performance of windows, skylights, and applied window films.
Requirements for fenestration products have been in the Building Code of Australia for many years. Typically, these requirements had more to do with structural performance and safety rather than with energy. However, since 2003, energy efficiency requirements have been progressively established for windows in both residential and commercial construction.
