The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is seeking volunteers with technical background in plumbing and mechanical systems and specific knowledge of plumbing pipe lining and rehabilitation systems — such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts — to participate on the IAPMO Z1351 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). The scope of IAPMO Z1351 covers applied in place pipe rehabilitation (AIPPR) systems intended for use in 40 to 400 DN (1.5 to 16 NPS) gravity and pressure applications such as DWV, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, electrical conduit, ventilation, process piping, and non-potable supply piping systems.
The Z1351 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of a new American National Standard (ANS). The Z1351 TSC will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments. The Z1351 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).
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 American National Standards, initially as the secretariat for the ANSI Z124 Technical Committee, and since 2005 as an ANSI-accredited standards development organization. On May 10, 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 May 1. Applications can be downloaded on the IAPMO website.
Interested parties wishing to serve on the Z1351 TSC should contact IAPMO Standards at email@example.com with a completed application as well as a copy of their résumé by the May 1 deadline, or they may contact George Istefan at 909-218-8131 with any questions.
