The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and GreenPlumbersUSA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and GreenPlumbersUSA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a collaborative arrangement to enhance the technical content of GreenPlumbers’ training and accreditation modules by extracting provisions contained within IAPMO’s Uniform Codes. IAPMO and Green Plumberswill also partner to develop additional programs and services that will advance the sustainability goals of both organizations.

Through the collaborative agreement, GreenPlumberswill adapt their training/accreditation modules to follow provisions as outlined by the 2009 editions of IAPMO’s Uniform Plumbing Code, Uniform Mechanical Code, Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub Code, Uniform Solar Energy Code and the 2010 IAPMO Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement.

IAPMO and GreenPlumberswill also develop a Green Plumbing and Mechanical Inspector Certification Program derived from the Uniform Codes and the GreenPlumberscurriculum, with a target date for delivery in late 2009. GreenPlumbershas provided IAPMO with an exclusive Conservation/Foundation Partnership with regard to GreenPlumberstraining and accreditation modules and programs.

Moving forward, the organizations will explore the feasibility of mutually creating an Engineer/Specifier certification module and training program.

GreenPlumbersUSA is a national training and accreditation program that assists plumbers in understanding their role in the environment and public health. For more information, visitwww.greenplumbersusa.com.
