IAPMO Seeks Technical Subcommittee Members for Development of National Standard IAPMO Z1059

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) is seeking volunteers, with technical background in plumbing and mechanical systems and specific knowledge of wastewater diverter valves and diversion systems — such as jurisdictional authorities, testing lab and educational facility representatives, as well as manufacturing experts and consumers — to participate on the IAPMO Z1059 Technical Subcommittee (TSC). The scope of IAPMO Z1059 covers wastewater diverter valves and diversion systems and specifies requirements for materials, physical characteristics, performance testing, and markings. Wastewater diverter valves covered by this standard can be used in alternate water source systems for indoor and outdoor non-potable uses. This standard does not cover grey water diversion valves, which are addressed in ASME A112.18.2/CSA B125.2. 

The Z1059 TSC members will be assisting the Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) with the development of a new American National Standard (ANSI) and National Standard of Canada (NSC). The Z1059 TSC will operate in accordance with IAPMO’s accredited procedures for standards development: IAPMO PP-1 (Policies and Procedures for Consensus Development of American National Standards) and IAPMO PP-2 (Policies and Procedures for Development of National Standards of Canada).

Founded in 1926, IAPMO seeks to be a worldwide leader in the plumbing and mechanical industry through the protection of health and safety. IAPMO develops industry standards with a focus on plumbing products, solar heating systems and components, mechanical products (including heating, ventilation, cooling and refrigeration system products) and products used in the recreational vehicle and manufactured housing industries.

For more than 30 years, IAPMO has developed plumbing 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.

The deadline to apply is July 26. Applications can be downloaded HERE.

Interested parties wishing to serve on the Z1059 TSC, please contact IAPMO Standards at standards@iapmostandards.org with a completed application, as well as a copy of your résumé by the July 26 deadline, or you may contact Kyle Thompson at (909) 230-5534 with any questions.
