Ontario, Calif. (July 2, 2019) – The 2019 editions of the California Plumbing Code (CPC®) and California Mechanical Code (CMC®) have been formally released. Both the hardcopy and eBook versions, viewable on computers, tablets and smart phones, can be purchased and downloaded via the IAPMO web store at www.iapmo.org.
The 2019 editions of the CPC and CMC represent the most current approaches in the plumbing and mechanical fields. These codes are embedded with the 2018 editions of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC®) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC®) with the California amendments. They mark the sixth editions developed under the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited process. Contributions to the content of these codes were made by every segment of the built industry, including such diverse interests as consumers, enforcing authorities, installers/maintainers, labor, manufacturers, research/standards/ testing laboratories, special experts, and users.
The CPC is designed to provide consumers with safe and sanitary plumbing systems while, at the same time, allowing latitude for innovation and new technologies. Key changes to the 2019 CPC include:
The CMC provides complete requirements for the installation and maintenance of heating, ventilating, cooling, and refrigeration systems, while at the same time allowing latitude for innovations and new technologies. Key changes to the 2019 CMC include:
New requirements for piping material, overpressure protection, and gas piping installation for fuel gas piping systems (Chapter 13).
