“The Codes app will provide jurisdictions everywhere an additional tool to use in the field,” said Hugo Aguilar, IAPMO’s vice president of codes and standards development. “This added service benefits inspectors, contractors, installers and homeowners, as they will be getting direct access to the IAPMO technical team for any code questions and be engaged in the code development process. The app will allow users to view their purchased codes in offline mode while traveling in an airplane or in rural areas with poor internet connection. The IAPMO Codes app will fill the gap between the industry and codes development so that together we can improve the lives of many while preserving the health and welfare of everyone.”
