IAPMO Reschedules 2011 Technical Committee Meetings for Development of 2012 Solar, Swimming Pool Codes
The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has rescheduled this year’s Technical Committee meetings toward the ANSI-accredited consensus development of the 2012 editions of the Uniform Solar Energy Code® (USEC) and Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub Code® (USPSHTC).
The meetings will be held at IAPMO’s new World Headquarters West building in Ontario, Calif., on Oct. 27-28. They were previously scheduled for Oct. 31.
The technical committees, consisting of a broad coalition of industry experts — installers, inspection officials, contractors, engineers and manufacturers — considered public proposals to amend the USEC and USPSHTC in advance of the release of the 2012 editions. Formal ballot voting on these proposals has concluded and the results will be published in the Report on Proposals next month and opened for public comment in April.
The USPSHTC governs the installation and inspection of both public and private swimming pools, spas and hot tubs to ensure the safety of their operation.
The USEC is a model code developed by IAPMO to govern the installation and inspection of solar energy systems as a means of promoting the public's health, safety and welfare.
