Plumbing Manufacturers International, in collaboration with its members, has issued a Product Category Rule (PCR) guidance document for kitchen and bath vessel fixtures. The guidance document was developed to help program operators apply consistent rules and calculations when developing PCRs for these fixtures, and has been distributed to them for their use.
“The creation of the PCR guidance document is a great example of the collaboration of PMI members to help the industry as a whole. It demonstrates what PMI is all about,” said Barbara C. Higgens, PMI CEO/executive director.
The document was created by PMI’s Sustainability Task Group, and approved by PMI’s Board of Directors. Comprised of PMI manufacturing members, the task group is part of PMI’s Water Efficiency and Sustainability Committee. The purpose and scope of this committee is to develop and implement strategy to influence public policy, legislation, regulation, certification, listing, and labeling related to the sustainability and water efficiency of plumbing products. The task group plans to develop additional guidance documents for other plumbing products.
