IAPMO Seeks Technical Subcommittee Members for Development of National Standard IAPMO Z1324

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) is seeking volunteers, with technical background in plumbing and mechanical systems and specific knowledge of alternate water source reuse systems — such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts — to participate on the IAPMO Z1324 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). The scope of IAPMO Z1324 covers alternate water source systems for multi‐family, residential, and commercial use intended to process water from alternate water sources — such as greywater, rainwater, stormwater, air conditioning condensate, cooling tower makeup, vehicle wash and other nonpotable reuse applications not specifically listed — for use in subsurface and/or surface irrigation and toilet/urinal flushing applications. The Z1324 standard will be developed by this TSC.

The Z1324 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of a new American National Standard and National Standard of Canada. The Z1324 TSC will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments. The Z1324 TSC 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) 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. 11. Applications can be downloaded HERE.

Interested parties wishing to serve on the Z1324 TSC, please contact IAPMO Standards at standards@iapmostandards.org with a completed application, as well as a copy of your résumé, by the Feb. 11 deadline, or you may contact Kyle Thompson at 909-230-5534 with any questions.
