As reported in previous posts below, the next edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC), incorporated by reference into many state water safety regulations, has begun a new revision cycle. The current edition is the 2021 UPC. IAPMO is now accepting public input on the 2024 Edition. The landing page for IAPMO standards action is linked below:
We have been tracking several proposals that deal with the nature and number of water closets and venting systems in education facilities; school food preparation and sewage systems; and piping materials for all occupancy classifications. The original proposals appear in the document linked below:
Technical committee response to proposed changes to the 2021 UPC is linked below:
Public Input is due January 4, 2021. CLICK HERE for information about how to do so.
We encourage academic unit facility managers, front line plumbing tradespersons, their shop foremen and others who have “nuts and bolts” experience with plumbing systems in education facilities to become engaged in the IAPMO code development process. War stories, operating data and solutions that reduce #TotalCostofOwnership always welcomed by ANSI accredited standards developers.
