Manufacturers wishing to have their plumbing products certified solely for the Canadian market now have such an option with IAPMO R&T. North America’s premier plumbing and mechanical product certification agency’s new Canadian certification program is a streamlined version of its popular service that previously included certification to both United States and Canadian standards.
In 10 years, IAPMO R&T has grown to become the leading provider of plumbing product certifications in Canada. Providing a Canadian-only listing was a natural next step in satisfying industry demands.
“We had many clients approach us and express interest in an option for certifying products only to Canadian standards,” said Edwin Ho, director of Canadian Certification Programs for IAPMO R&T. “We pride ourselves on being attentive to our clients’ needs, so we created this program specifically for them.”
Manufacturers utilizing the new service benefit from a lower cost while maintaining the same levels of acceptance in all provinces and territories, speed to market and customer service they’ve always received from their IAPMO R&T listing. Should they decide at a later date to add U.S. certification, the upgrade is simple and straightforward.
The IAPMO Group offers a comprehensive menu of services — product testing and certification, code and standard development, training and education — offering clients one-stop shopping for all of their plumbing and mechanical needs. For a complete listing of available services, visit www.iapmo.org.
IAPMO R&T certifies and lists plumbing, mechanical, electrical and solar products according to established US and Canadian codes and standards, ensuring continuous compliance to such documents. IAPMO R&T is part of The IAPMO Group’s family of companies.
