The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials and the International Code Council will meet in February to begin work in earnest to determine whether the organizations can agree on all of the essential elements needed to create a joint Plumbing and Mechanical code, according to representatives of both organizations. The executive committees of both boards and key staff met for several hours on Nov. 19 in Little Rock, Ark., to continue their ongoing discussion of a joint venture to create single plumbing and mechanical codes for the country.
