Press Connections

When a new and novel product comes to the market, the industry must have confidence that the product will function as intended, but most importantly, it is safe for public use.

 

The IAPMO Industry Standards undergo a rigorous development and revision procedure with the input from interested stakeholders including manufacturers, city officials, building and plumbing inspectors, and product distributors through our open consensus standards development process. This includes a 20-day public review period, where the draft standard is published on our public review webpage.

 

Through our industry standards, IAPMO provides manufacturers and product developers a vehicle for introducing new products to the marketplace in timely manner.


Under Public Review:

IAPMO IS 31, Installation Standard for PEX Tubing Systems for Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution, Deadline for comment is October 31, 2022.

ASSE/IAPMO IGC 376, Industry Standard for UltraPure and Sterile Water – Water Treatment Devices, Deadline for comment is November 8, 2022.

ASSE Listing Evaluation Criteria (LEC)

ASSE recognizes the importance and benefits of input from a variety of industry stakeholders in order to develop the best standards and performance documents. Listing Evaluation Criteria (LEC) are Other Recognized Documents (ORD’s) that establish the initial rules for unique products in the marketplace. An LEC is an opportunity for new devices to gain a footing in the marketplace when combined with 3rd-party certification. This includes a 20-day public review period, where the draft standard is published on our public review webpage.
