Hawaiian Gardens, a California city on the southeast border of Los Angeles County, is the latest U.S. municipality to issue building permits based on an evaluation report completed by IAPMO ES.
Hundreds of jurisdictions nationwide now recognize the validity of IAPMO ES reports, including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties in California, Clark County in Nevada, and the cities of Los Angeles and Scottsdale, Ariz., to name a few.
“Word has spread across the country, from city to city, that IAPMO ES evaluation reports are a perfectly valid alternative to those produced by other more expensive, time consuming and less credible providers,” said Amir Zamanian, director of IAPMO ES.
IAPMO ES is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) per the ISO/IEC Guide 65, General Requirements for Bodies Operating Product Certification Systems. This means that building products, materials and designs evaluated by IAPMO ES are trusted by contractors, inspectors, officials and Authorities Having Jurisdiction. Compliance with section 1703 of the International Building Code (IBC) and immediate approval of products is assured.
