IAPMO, developer of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC), is calling for public comments on the Report on Proposals for the 2021 editions of these codes.

The public comment form, as well as instructions and background on IAPMO’s ANSI-accredited consensus-development process, can be found at http://codes.iapmo.org/form_comments_upc_umc_2021.aspx. All comments should indicate the exact wording recommended as new, revised or to be deleted, as well as state the problem the recommendation is intended to resolve and the specific reason for making the comment.

No comments will be accepted after the 5 p.m. PST deadline on Jan. 3, 2019. All public comments will be distributed to the Technical Committee members in March and reviewed at their meetings, April 29-May 2, 2019, in Denver.

IAPMO urges its members and other interested parties to get involved in the process to ensure effectiveness in preserving the public health, safety, and welfare through fair and balanced development of its codes and standards. Installers, plumbing and mechanical officials, the construction industry, engineers, and manufacturers all benefit from a cooperative effort in developing codes.
