IAPMO Seeks Technical Subcommittee Members for Development of National Standard IAPMO Z124.10

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, as well as manufacturing experts — to participate on the IAPMO Z124 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). A new standard, Z124.10, for water closet and urinal partitions, will be developed by this TSC.

The Z124 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of Z124.10 as a new American National Standard and National Standard of Canada. The Z124 TSC will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments. The Z124 TSC operates in accordance with IAPMO’s accredited procedures for standards development IAPMO PP-1 (Policies and Procedures for Consensus Development of American National Standards) and 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 the protection of 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 manufactured housing industries.

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. 12. Applications can be downloaded HERE.

Interested parties wishing to serve on the Z124 TSC, please contact IAPMO Standards at standards@iapmostandards.org with a completed application, as well as a copy of your résumé, by the Feb. 12 deadline, or you may contact Kyle Thompson at 909-230-5534 with any questions.
