IAMPO Posts Code Supplement for Review

Sept. 2, 2009
'Green Supplement' adds language on water, energy efficiency

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has posted the Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement for peer review and comment.

The 45-day review period will conclude at 5 p.m. CDT on Friday, Oct. 9, at which point no more comments will be accepted.

The Green Supplement will complement IAPMO’s Uniform Codes — or any other adopted plumbing and mechanical code — by introducing additional language pertaining to water and energy efficiency, HVAC system commissioning, the use of alternate water sources, such as gray water and harvested rainwater, and increased indoor environmental quality.

This preliminary version of the supplement and the peer review comment form can be obtained by contacting Maria Bazan by e-mail at [email protected]. Comments will only be accepted electronically via e-mail.

Comments received will be compiled and serve as the agenda for the IAPMO Green Technical Committee meeting in Chicago, Nov. 17-19, at which time the committee will finalize the supplement for publishing by February 2010.
