The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is seeking volunteers with technical background in plumbing and mechanical systems and specific knowledge of solid waste containment interceptors — such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts — to participate on the IAPMO Z1167 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). The scope of IAPMO Z1167 covers solid waste containment interceptors intended for specialty uses including dental offices, medical offices, laundry applications, and testing laboratories, and specifies requirements for materials, physical characteristics, performance testing, and markings.
The Z1167 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of a new IAPMO/ANSI American National Standard (ANSI). The Z1167 TSC will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments. The Z1167 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 (ANS), 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 March 15, 2019. Applications can be downloaded here. Those who wish to serve on the Z1167 TSC, please contact IAPMO Standards at firstname.lastname@example.org with a completed application and résumé by the March 15 deadline. Interested parties may contact Kyle Thompson at (909) 230-5534 with any questions.
