IAPMO Seeks Plumbing Standards Committee Members for Development of National Standards for the U.S. and Canada

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) is seeking volunteers with technical background in plumbing and mechanical systems, such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, and manufacturing experts, to participate on the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC).

For more than 30 years, IAPMO has developed American National Standards, initially as the Secretariat for the ANSI Z124 Technical Committee, and since 2005 as an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited standards development organization. On May 10, IAPMO received accreditation through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for development of National Standards of Canada, thus accepting responsibility for the development of CAN/IAPMO designated standards.

The PSC members will be responsible for developing new and maintaining existing IAPMO/ANSI American National Standards and CAN/IAPMO National Standards of Canada. The PSC will operate in accordance with IAPMO’s accredited procedures for standards development:
IAPMO PP-1 (Policies and Procedures for Consensus Development of American National Standards)
IAPMO PP-2 (Policies and Procedures for Development of National Standards of Canada)

Founded in 1926, IAPMO seeks to be a worldwide leader in the plumbing and mechanical industry through protecting health and safety. IAPMO develops industry standards with a focus on plumbing products, solar heating systems and components, mechanical products (including heating, ventilation, cooling and refrigeration system products) and products used in the recreational vehicle and the manufactured housing industry.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 3. Those interested in participating may apply online.

Interested parties may contact Kyle Thompson at (909) 230-5534 or by email at kyle.thompson@iapmo.org.
