The security screen industry is a complex and dynamic industry, characterised by a diverse stakeholder
base, federal, state and local government legislation, licencing and standards.
The National Security Screen Association (NSSA) Queensland has been the only active chapter of the NSSA for many years and has recently begun the process of driving change nationally. In February 2016, the AWA expanded its secretariat to include the NSSAQ and accepted the task of rebuilding the NSSA to a national level.
Responding to concerns and frustrations voiced by industry members, the NSSA has affiliated itself with the AWA to create a fully functioning, member driven national industry body. This forms part of a wider fenestration related group of associations coming together to realise reduced running costs, improved services to all members and a wider advocacy voice with standards, codes and governments. The charter for NSSA is to advocate on behalf of its members, to set industry standards and drive greater collaboration and cohesion between the industry and suppliers through training, education and awareness nationally.
