The standard, which will use as its basis the water and sanitation provisions within IAPMO’s 2015 Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement, draws upon IAPMO’s core competency and industry expertise in plumbing systems for the purpose of providing comprehensive requirements to optimize water use practices attributed to the built environment while maintaining protection of the public health, safety and welfare.
