The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is holding its 2019 Education and Business Conference next week at the Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno, Nevada. The ASSE International Meeting will Co-Locate with the five-day event. It includes education sessions, evening networking events, and the development of the 2021 editions of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC).

As part of that process IAPMO has created a hydronics task group to review all hydronics proposals submitted to the 2019 Uniform Solar, Hydronics and Geothermal Code (USHGC). The new task force will draft recommendations for action by the USHGC Technical Committee.

UPC  and UMC codes are republished at the conclusion of each three-year code cycle, and are designed to provide consumers with safe plumbing, heating, and mechanical systems while also allowing for innovation and new technologies.

The conference brings together subject matter experts, manufacturers, engineers, contractors, students, instructors, and administrators. More information here.
