The 2022 editions of the California Plumbing Code (CPC) and California Mechanical Code (CMC) have been formally released. Both the hardcopy and eBook versions, viewable on computers, tablets and smart phones, can be purchased and downloaded via the IAPMO web store.
The 2022 editions of the CPC and CMC represent the most current approaches in the plumbing and mechanical fields. These codes are embedded with the 2021 editions of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC) with the California amendments. They mark the seventh editions developed under the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited process. Contributions to the content of these codes were made by every segment of the built industry, including such diverse interests as consumers, enforcing authorities, installers/maintainers, labor, manufacturers, research/standards/ testing laboratories, special experts, and users.
