IAPMO Solicits Proposals for 2024 UPC, UMC

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, publisher of the Uniform Plumbing Code and Uniform Mechanical Code, is calling for formal code proposals toward the development of the 2024 editions of these American National Standard designated model codes.

The code proposal form, as well as proposal instructions and background on IAPMO’s ANSI-accredited consensus process, may be found at http://codes.iapmo.org/form_proposals_upc_umc_2024.aspx. All proposals recommending new text, revised text or the deletion of text must be written in legislative format and clearly state the reason behind the recommendation.

No proposals will be accepted after the 5 p.m. PST deadline on Jan. 4, 2021.

IAPMO employs a voluntary consensus development process accredited by the American National Standards Institute, gathering the largest assembly of plumbing and mechanical experts in the world at its annual education and business conference and technical committee meetings, enabling anyone — members and non-members alike — to have a voice on proposed changes to the code. The 2024 editions of the UPC and UMC will mark the eighth time these codes have been developed in this manner and the fifth time developed pursuant to IAPMO’s status as an ANSI Audited Designator.
