IAPMO Seeks Canadian Input on Development of IAPMO Z1001 as Canadian National Standard

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is seeking Canadian input in the development of IAPMO Z1001, Prefabricated Gravity Grease Interceptors, as a National Standard of Canada. Canadian regulators, consumers, and other professionals with technical background in plumbing and mechanical systems, such as jurisdictional authorities, laboratory, and educational facility representatives, are requested to provide comments by no later than July 26.

This standard covers prefabricated gravity grease interceptors made of concrete, fiber‐reinforced polyester (FRP), thermoplastic, or steel, and specifies requirements for design, materials, performance, testing and markings.

Comments received will be forwarded to the IAPMO Plumbing Standards Committee (PSC) for review and consideration. On May 10, 2018, IAPMO received accreditation through the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) for development of National Standards of Canada, thus accepting responsibility for the development of CAN/IAPMO designated standards.

The PSC is an established balanced committee, which consists of both U.S and Canadian stakeholders. The PSC members are responsible for developing new and maintaining existing IAPMO/ANSI American National Standards and CAN/IAPMO National Standards of Canada. The PSC operates in accordance with IAPMO’s accredited procedures for standards development (IAPMO PP-2 Policies and Procedures for Development of National Standards of Canada).

Founded in 1926, IAPMO seeks to be a worldwide leader in the plumbing and mechanical industry through protecting health and safety. IAPMO develops industry standards with a focus on plumbing products, solar heating systems and components, mechanical products (including heating, ventilation, cooling, and refrigeration system products) and products used in the recreational vehicle and the manufactured housing industry.
