The good News is that we didn't need the "Panic Button".  ASPE members offered all kinds of services to resolve
our problem. We thank all those who offered. It helps resolve the real concerns that we have monthly that we
will be able to offer a valuable service to Engineers in
this market.

Sal's efforts to put together informative presentations
have been intensive. When you see Sal, thank him for all
of us.

2015 Uniform Plumbing Code and Uniform Mechanical Code released

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has released the hardcopy and digital versions of its 2015 editions of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC)
and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC). Both the hardcopy and eBook versions, viewable on computers, tablets and smart phones, can be purchased and
downloaded via the IAPMO web store. In December, the IAPMO Standards Council issued the 2015 editions of these codes, designated as an American National Standard for the fifth time. IAPMO's ANSI-accredited process brings together volunteers representing a variety of viewpoints and interests to achieve consensus
on mechanical practices.

The UPC and UMC are the only plumbing and mechanical codes of practice to be designated American National Standards. Significant changes to the UPC include: New product standards for plumbing fixtures such as lavatories, showers, bathtubs and whirlpool bathtubs, bidets, urinals, drinking fountains, and sinks (Chapter 4) Lead-content provisions have been revised
to address the minimum acceptable percentage lead content for pipes and fittings (Chapter 6).

Later published by IAPMO in 1967, the UMC provides the same governance for mechanical (HVAC, combustion, exhaust, refrigeration) systems. Developed and subsequently republished at the conclusion of each three-year code cycle, the UPC and UMC are designed to provide consumers with safe plumbing, heating and mechanical systems while, at the same time, allowing latitude for innovation and new technologies. The public at large is encouraged and invited to participate in IAPMO's open consensus code development process. A code development timeline
and other relevant information are available at IAPMO's website.
