The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is seeking volunteers with technical background in plumbing systems and specific knowledge of plumbing pipe support hangers and hooks — such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts — to participate on the IAPMO Z1095 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). The scope of IAPMO Z1095 covers pipe support hangers and hooks intended for use in plumbing supply and drain waste vent systems.
The Z1095 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of a new American National Standard (ANSI) and Canadian National Standard (CAN). The Z1095 TSC will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments. The Z1095 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.
