IAPMO Seeks Technical Subcommittee Members for Development of Canadian National Standard IAPMO Z1106

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) is seeking volunteers, with technical background in plumbing systems and specific knowledge of tileable shower receptors and shower kits — such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts — to participate on the IAPMO Z1106 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). The scope of IAPMO Z1106covers tileable shower receptors and shower kits intended for use in commercial and residential restrooms.

The Z1106 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of a new Canadian National Standard (CAN). The Z1106 TSC will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments. The Z1106 TSC will operate in accordance with IAPMO’s accredited procedures for standards development: IAPMO PP-2 (Policies and Procedures for Development of National Standards of Canada).

For more than 30 years, IAPMO has developed plumbing product standards as American National Standards, initially as the Secretariat for the ANSI Z124 Technical Committee in 1984, and since 2005 independently under its own American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards development procedures. In 2018, IAPMO received accreditation through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for development of National Standards of Canada, thus accepting the responsibility for development of CAN/IAPMO-designated standards.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 28. Applications can be downloaded HERE

Interested parties wishing to serve on the Z1106 TSC, please contact IAPMO Standards at standards@iapmostandards.org with a completed application, as well as a copy of your résumé, by the Feb. 28 deadline, or you may contact Terry Burger at (909) 519-0740 with any questions.
