Report on Proposals (ROP) Toward Development of 2023 WE•Stand Now Available for Online Download

Ontario, Calif. — The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®), developer of the Water Efficiency and Sanitation Standard (WE•Stand), has posted online the 2022 Report on Proposals for the 2023 edition of this prospective American National Standard-designated model code.

No hardcopy edition of this publication will be printed or distributed. Interested parties are encouraged to download the document HERE.

IAPMO will begin the Call for Comments on this document on Oct. 7, when all suggested code amendments/additions/deletions published in the ROP will be available for public review. The deadline for submission of comments is Jan. 13, 2023, at 5 p.m. PST.

IAPMO employs a voluntary consensus development process accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the development of WE•Stand, enabling anyone to have a voice in the development of the standard. The WE•Stand Technical Committee, charged with the development and ongoing maintenance of WE•Stand, brings together an impressive and diverse assembly of plumbing and water efficiency experts.

IAPMO urges its members and other interested parties to get involved in the development process to ensure effectiveness in preserving the public health, safety, and welfare. Manufacturers, potential users of the standard, installers and maintainers, labor representatives, design professionals, enforcing authorities, and consumers all benefit from a cooperative effort in developing codes and standards.

For questions about submitting proposals for the WE•Stand, contact Taylor Duran at (909) 218-8126 or by email at taylor.duran@iapmo.org.


IAPMO develops and publishes the Uniform Plumbing Code®, the most widely recognized code of practice used by the plumbing industry worldwide; Uniform Mechanical Code®; Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub Code®; and Uniform Solar Energy, Hydronics and Geothermal Code — the only plumbing, mechanical, solar energy and swimming pool codes designated by ANSI as American National Standards — and the Water Efficiency Standard (WE-Stand)™. IAPMO works with government, contractors, labor force, and manufacturers to produce product standards, technical manuals, personnel certification/educational programs and additional resources in order to meet the ever-evolving demands of the industry in protecting public health and safety.
