IAPMO Seeks UMC Factory-Made Air Duct Task Group Members

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is accepting applications and seeking technical experts to participate on a task group relating to factory-made air ducts.

The scope of the Factory-Made Duct Task Group is to review how the term “factory-made air ducts” is referenced throughout the Uniform Mechanical Code® (UMC) and to review products that fall under this category. The objective is to provide an in-depth analysis and develop recommendations for the UMC Technical Committee for consideration.

Task group members will participate via conference call or web meeting, provide their perspective on the code, and assist in drafting recommendations for action by the UMC Technical Committee’s consideration. Applicants are not required to be members of the UMC Technical Committee.

Those interested in participating on the Factory-Made Air Duct Task Group can apply HERE.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 22.

Published by IAPMO in 1967, the UMC is developed to govern the installation and inspection of mechanical (HVAC, combustion, exhaust, refrigeration) systems as a means of promoting the public’s health, safety, and welfare.

Developed and subsequently republished at the conclusion of each three-year code cycle, the Uniform Codes are designed to provide consumers with safe plumbing, heating, and mechanical systems while, at the same time, allowing latitude for innovation and new technologies.

Interested individuals may contact Enrique Gonzalez at (909) 230-5535 or by email at enrique.gonzalez@iapmo.org.
