Turn to IAPMO R&T for Certification of Plastic Pipes and Fittings


Manufacturers of plastic pipes and fittings for plumbing systems searching for an ally to assist them in securing market share within a competitive industry needn’t look any further than IAPMO R&T.

North America’s premier plumbing and mechanical product certification agency can certify these plastic products to every standard required in order to market them within the United States or Canada, including AWWA C909 and C900.

The ultimate benefit, however, comes from IAPMO R&T’s ability to bundle all of the necessary standards for plastic pipe and fittings into one certificate. Included are AWWA, ASTM, NSF 14, IPC, UPC, National Plumbing Code of Canada and CSA standards.

No competing certification body can offer that comprehensive range of certification capabilities with matching credibility.

“It is well established that Authorities Having Jurisdiction look for the actual UPC certification mark issued by IAPMO R&T when evaluating which products they want used in their jurisdiction,” said Charles Gross, director of Certification for IAPMO R&T.

By bundling all of these certifications into one service, IAPMO R&T is able to offer not only convenience and peace of mind, but also the best rates available for such a comprehensive package.

“IAPMO R&T provides credible service with the fastest turnaround of any certification body we’ve used,” said Ralph Guinn, manager, Codes Approvals and Specifications for Canplas Industries Ltd. “We have enjoyed IAPMO R&T’s certification service for decades and recommend it to all plastic pipe and fitting manufacturers in the industry.”

Since 1936, Authorities Having Jurisdiction have trusted IAPMO R&T to certify plumbing products that meet the required standards.
