NFPA and IAPMO to develop codes for built environment

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) are moving toward developing the Uniform Plumbing and Mechanical Code®.

According to IAPMO Executive Director G. P. Russ Chaney, the Code will be a “consensus process model after NFPA`s open, accessible system.” The NFPA publishes the National Fire Codes®, which comprise more than 300 voluntary codes and standards addressing fire, electrical, and life safety guidelines. IAPMO publishes the Uniform Plumbing Code© (UPC), Uniform Mechanical Code© (UMC), and other Uniform Codes and Standards.
