The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials® (IAPMO), publisher of the Water Efficiency and Sanitation Standard™ (WE•Stand), is announcing a formal call for proposals toward the development of the 2023 edition of this standard.
The change proposal form, as well as proposal instructions and background on IAPMO’s ANSI-accredited consensus process, may be found HERE. All proposals recommending new text, revised text, or the deletion of text must be written in legislative format and clearly state the reason behind the recommendation.
No proposals will be accepted after the 5 p.m. PST deadline on March 4, 2022.
Developed and subsequently republished every three years, the WE•Stand is designed to provide minimum requirements to optimize water use practices attributed to the built environment while maintaining protection of the public health, safety, and welfare, and allowing latitude for innovation and new technologies.

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 proposals for the WE•Stand, contact Taylor Costea at (909) 218-8126 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
