Codes and Standards

ANSI American National Institute

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a private, non-profit organization (501(c)3) that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardization and conformity assessment system.

ASTM American Society for Testing & Materials

ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards development organizations in the world-a trusted source for technical standards for materials, products, systems, and services. Known for their high technical quality and market relevancy, ASTM International standards have an important role in the information infrastructure that guides design, manufacturing and trade in the global economy.

CSA Canadian Standard Association

CSA Canadian Standard Association test products for compliance to national and international standards, and issue certification marks for qualified products. Certification marks tell potential customers and users that a product has been evaluated by a formal process-involving examination, testing and follow-up inspection-and that it complies with applicable standards for safety and performance.

IAPMO International Association of Plumbing & Mechanical Officials

IAPMO has the largest assembly of plumbing and mechanical expertise in the world at its annual business conference. This is a democratic, consensus group, in which anyone can have a voice. In order to have a Uniform Plumbing Code and a Uniform Mechanical Code, hundreds of years of combined technical experience and knowledge are needed to provide updated information about new trade practices, products, materials, and installation procedures. This is all accomplished through our various committees ranging from the standing committees to ad hoc committees.

ICC Internation Code Council

The International Code Council (ICC) was established in 1994 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing a single set of comprehensive and coordinated national model construction codes. The founders of the ICC are Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA), International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO), and Southern Building Code Congress International, Inc. (SBCCI). Since the early part of the last century, these nonprofit organizations developed the three separate sets of model codes used throughout the United States. Although regional code development has been effective and responsive to our country's needs, the time came for a single set of codes. The nation's three model code groups responded by creating the International Code Council and by developing codes without regional limitations, the International Codes.
