The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAMPO) is now a Global Industry Partner. For 90 years, IAPMO has been working with government and industry to implement comprehensive plumbing and mechanical systems around the world. As a Global Industry Partner, IAPMO will expand its work of improving the health of people everywhere through the power of skills.
IAPMO and Indonesian government officials collaborated on two events in May, whose joint goal was to take the country’s national standard for plumbing, SNI 8153:2015, Plumbing Systems for Buildings, from the classroom to the real world. Both corporate social responsibility projects seek to strengthen the relationship between IAPMO and the Indonesian government in order to enhance their support for the needs of the Indonesian plumbing and sanitation industry and aid in the development of Indonesia’s national standards for health, safety and the environment.
The IAPMO Group attended the recent grand opening of the Taiwan Institute for Plumbing Innovation in Changhua, Taiwan. IAPMO Group COO and Executive Vice President Dave Viola and IAPMO R&T Executive Vice President of Lab Recognition / Asia Pacific Operations Jin Luo participated in the ribbon cutting at the invitation of Mr. Yih-Dar Wu, Chairman of the Plumbing Association of Taiwan. IAPMO R&T is recognized for certifying the first Taiwanese plumbing product for the North American market — a faucet manufactured by Global Union in 1986.
IAPMO R&T, together with IAPMO R&T Lab and IAPMO R&T Oceana, participated in the 21st Kitchen and Bath China 2016 in Shanghai earlier this month. The event has become one of the largest trade shows in the world for the kitchen and bath industry.
IAPMO again promoted and participated in High-Performance Building Week events in the nation’s capital. Organized by a coalition of building industry stakeholders that support the High-Performance Building Coalition (HPBC), the annual event seeks to inform and stimulate discussion about the benefits (water/energy conservation, improved safety/environmental quality) derived from high-performance buildings and practices.
