IAPMO acquires National Standard Plumbing Code

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the Plumbing–Heating–Cooling–Contractors (PHCC) Association executed an agreement as from 1 June 2017, transferring ownership of the National Standard Plumbing Code (NSPC) to IAPMO.

The transfer encompasses all editions of the NSPC, including the 2018 edition. The NSPC has a long history of establishing safety requirements for both water supply and sanitation systems; today it will continue as one of three model plumbing codes still utilised in the US.

New Jersey and several locations in Maryland are the primary adopters and users of the NSPC. Once the 2018 NSPC is published for adoption, IAPMO will provide all code support services to all jurisdictions using the NSPC. PHCC and IAPMO will work together to develop co-branded educational services such as code update classes, code workshops, and other training and educational programmes for the NSPC. These educational programmes shall be offered to PHCC, IAPMO members, and the industry.

An inventory of all editions of the NSPC will be stored at IAPMO’s world headquarters facility in Ontario, California. IAPMO will work with the PHCC to support the needs of local members and the industry.

Looking ahead, IAPMO intends to develop the 2021 edition of the NSPC and looks forward to working with existing NSPC Committee members in the future.

IAPMO CEO Russ Chaney notes, “IAPMO is delighted to assume the responsibility of maintaining and further developing the NSPC so that those states that continue to use this world-class plumbing code will have ongoing access to health and safety provisions. IAPMO will work closely with PHCC to ensure a smooth transition. IAPMO will assume and enhance code support services that have therefore been administered by PHCC.”
