IAPMO Seeks Technical Committee Members

ONTARIO, Calif. — The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials is seeking volunteers to participate on two technical committees working toward the development of the 2018 editions of the Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa, and Hot Tub Code and Uniform Solar Energy and Hydronics Code. The deadline to submit an application is July 1.

The USPSHTC and USEHC technical committees each seek members in the following categories: manufacturer, user, installer/maintainer, labor, research/standards/testing laboratory, enforcing authority, consumer and special expert. These committees are assembled in accordance with the Regulations Governing Consensus Development of the USPSHTC and USEHC and the Guide for the Conduct of Participants in the IAPMO codes and standards development process.

Within them, prospective technical committee participants can find information on the scope and general guidelines for conduct of these committees.

IAPMO first adopted the USPSHTC and USEHC in September 1976. The provisions of these codes apply to the erection, installation, alteration, repair, relocation, replacement, addition to or maintenance of any solar energy, hydronic heating/cooling, swimming pool, spa or hot tub system. The 2009, 2012 and 2015 editions of these codes were produced using a consensus process similar to the one used to develop the Uniform Plumbing Code and Uniform Mechanical Code®, which are designated as American National Standards.

Anyone interested in serving on one of these committees can complete the application online at: http://forms.iapmo.org/iapmo/committee/app_tech_committee_ps.asp.
