IAPMO India Lists Copper, Stainless Steel Press Type Fittings for Viega, GmbH &Co.KG

Bangalore, India — IAPMO India is pleased to announce that it now lists copper and stainless steel press type fittings for Viega, GmbH & Co. KG, a leading manufacturer of plumbing piping systems for the architectural, commercial, correctional, industrial, institutional and residential sectors.

As a result of Viega’s two new fittings listings, architects, consumers, contractors, engineers, plumbing instructors, plumbing designers, and inspectors alike now know that the listed Viega press type fittings systems comply with the standards as listed on the certificate for their use throughout India. Both listings are the first product categories of their kind to be listed by IAPMO India, and their web listings may be seen at here.

“We are very excited to have IAPMO India list our copper and stainless steel press type fittings,” said Shailesh Khamar, Country Head India for Viega, GmbH & Co. KG.

Based in Attendorn, Germany, Viega is a longtime repeat client of IAPMO R&T (IAPMO India’s sister company), having previously listed many other product categories for more than 15 years.

Since 2007, IAPMO India, a private, non-governmental organization, has established a successful partnership with the Indian Plumbing Association (www.indianplumbing.org) to develop various industry codes (e.g., the Uniform Plumbing Code – India (UPC-­I), Uniform Solar Energy Code – India (USEC-­I), Uniform Swimming Pool Code – India (UPSC-I), Green Plumbing Code Supplement – India (GPCS-I), and the water efficiency rating specification Water Efficient Products India (WEP-­I), as well as plumbing training and educational programs (now in session) throughout India for designers, contractors, students and engineers. IAPMO India also similarly worked with the upper hierarchies of the Fire and Security Association Of India (http://www.fsai.in) and the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (http://www.ishrae.in) to develop the Uniform Mechanical Code – India (UMC-I) for products used within mechanical systems.
