National Standard Plumbing Code Public Hearing Set for March 9

The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association encourages all members and industry representatives to review the Proposed Code Changes for the 2018 National Standard Plumbing Code and attend the NSPC Public Hearing, scheduled for March 9.

“This hearing is crucial to ensuring that all interested parties – licensed contractors, engineers and inspectors – are on the same page when it comes to properly installing plumbing systems and protecting public health and safety,” says Chuck White, PHCC’s vice president of regulatory affairs.

The NSPC Committee requested proposed changes to the 2015 NSPC last fall; if approved at the March hearing, the changes will appear in the 2018 NSPC; the NSPC Committee reviews the code annually and updates it on a three-year cycle.

The Public Hearing for Proposed Code Changes for the 2018 NSPC will take place from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Thursday, March 9, at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
