The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials 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. 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 will also be responsible for the content and processing of public review comments.
