The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®), developer of the Water Efficiency and Sanitation Standard (WE•Stand), has posted online the 2022 Report on Proposals for the 2023 edition of this prospective American National Standard-designated model code.
No hardcopy edition of this publication will be printed or distributed. Interested parties are encouraged to download the document here.
IAPMO will begin the Call for Comments on this document on Oct. 7, when all suggested code amendments/additions/deletions published in the ROP will be available for public review. The deadline for submission of comments is Jan. 13, 2023, at 5 p.m. PST.
IAPMO employs a voluntary consensus development process accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for the development of WE•Stand, enabling anyone to have a voice in the development of the standard. The WE•Stand Technical Committee, charged with the development and ongoing maintenance of WE•Stand, brings together an impressive and diverse assembly of plumbing and water efficiency experts.
IAPMO urges its members and other interested parties to get involved in the development process to ensure effectiveness in preserving the public health, safety, and welfare. Manufacturers, potential users of the standard, installers and maintainers, labor representatives, design professionals, enforcing authorities, and consumers all benefit from a cooperative effort in developing codes and standards.
For questions about submitting comments for the WE•Stand, contact Taylor Duran at (909) 218-8126 or by email at email@example.com.
