The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) is seeking volunteers to participate on two technical committees working toward the development of the 2024 editions of the Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa, and Hot Tub Code (USPSHTC) and Uniform Solar, Hydronics, and Geothermal Code (USHGC). The deadline to submit an application is July 5.
The USPSHTC and USHGC technical committees each seek members in the following categories: manufacturer, user, installer/maintainer, labor, research/standards/testing laboratory, enforcing authority, consumer, and special expert. These committees are assembled in accordance with the Regulations Governing Consensus Development of the USPSHTC and USHGC and the Guide for the Conduct of Participants in the IAPMO codes and standards development process. These documents may be viewed here.
Within these documents, prospective technical committee participants can find information on the scope and general guidelines for conduct of these committees.
IAPMO first developed the USPSHTC in March 1967 and the USEHCin September 1976. The provisions of these codes apply to the erection, installation, alteration, repair, relocation, replacement, addition to, or maintenance of any solar energy, hydronic heating/cooling, swimming pool, spa, or hot tub system. These codes are produced using a consensus process accredited by ANSI and will be self-designated as American National Standards upon completion, as IAPMO is an ANSI Audited Designator.
Anyone interested in serving on one of these committees can complete the application online at the Code Development webpage.
