The ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) Plumbing, Mechanical, and Fuel Gas (PMG) Listing Program welcomes one of the largest manufacturers of bathroom plumbing products in Mexico—Helvex—to their expanding client roster. Helvex has more than 70 years of experience manufacturing high-quality faucets, showers, toilets, sinks, and bathroom accessories for customers all over the world.
The client came to ICC-ES PMG as part of the Transfer and Save program, which allows manufacturers to obtain a highly accepted, low-cost product certification from the most qualified and most credible certification body. Helvex has now certified several products with ICC-ES, including ceramic plumbing fixtures and plumbing supply fittings.
“The experience as a company and personally has been very rewarding; from the beginning we have had invaluable technical advice in addition to always having impeccable attention and efficient response time,” said Elizabeth Rodriguez, Certifications Coordinator at Helvex. “ICC-ES has given us confidence that we will always be able to count on their expertise and solutions for Helvex’s certification needs today and in the future.”
“The fact that yet another manufacturer has switched to ICC-ES is a testament to the program’s success and the quality of service provided,” said Dawn La Fleur-Qualley, ICC-ES PMG Program Director. “We welcome more and more new manufacturers to our listing program every day; the acceptability of the ICC-ES mark of conformity speaks for itself.”
ICC-ES PMG is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), Standards Council of Canada (SCC), and ema to certify plumbing and mechanical products to Official Mexican Standards (NOMs). With this, the program offers listings to meet all manufacturer certification needs in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
ICC-ES PMG is also licensed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to certify water-efficient products under the WaterSense® program and is approved by the City of Los Angeles.
