For more than 30 years, IAPMO has developed product standards as American National Standards, initially as the Secretariat for the ANSI Z124 Technical Committee in 1984, and since 2005 independently under its own American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards development procedures. In 2018, IAPMO received accreditation through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for development of National Standards of Canada, thus accepting the responsibility for development of CAN/IAPMO-designated standards.
On top of ANSI and SCC accredited Standards, IAPMO also develops Industry Standards to cover innovative new plumbing products not covered by existing standards. Often, new products or new technologies surge ahead far faster than most standards can keep pace. Through our Industry Standards, IAPMO provides manufacturers and product developers a vehicle for introducing new products to the marketplace in a timely manner.
Below are recent updates for the IAPMO National Standards and Industry Standards.
