The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials recently completed Technical Committee Meetings toward the development of the 2018 editions of the Uniform Solar Energy and Hydronics Code and Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub Code, both American National Standards.
During the Oct. 25-26 meetings held via conference call and at IAPMO’s World Headquarters West in Ontario, Calif., the committees acted on more than 173 proposed amendments to the 2015 editions of these Uniform Codes.
Public proposals to the USEHC address such issues as:
Furthermore, the USEHC Technical Committee requested the formation of two task groups. A Geothermal Piping Task Group will review items 97-100 of the 2016 USEHC Report on Proposals with regard to testing of u-bends and headers in Geothermal Systems, Section 703.4.2. A Photovoltaic Task Group will review items 122-126 of the 2016 USEHC ROP with regard to Photovoltaic Systems, Sections 901.0, 902.0, 903.0, 908.0, and 909.0.
In accordance with IAPMO’s American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited code development process, balloting through the USEHC and USPSHTC Technical Committees will begin on Nov. 15 and conclude on Dec. 16. The ROP will be created from these balloted actions and distributed to committee members on Feb. 21, 2017.
