The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) has released an English translation of SNI 8153:2015, Plumbing Systems for Buildings, the first Indonesian National Standard for plumbing. Both a hardcopy and eBook version, viewable on computers, tablets and smart phones, can be purchased and downloaded via the IAPMO web store.
Developed as the result of a collaboration between IAPMO and the National Standardization Agency of Indonesia (BSN), SNI 8153:2015 sets specifications for plumbing appliances and standardizes plumbing system planning, installation, alteration, repair, replacement, addition, and maintenance within Indonesia. It was published in Bahasa, the official language of Indonesia, and released to the nation in March 2015.
“This translated version is an important document for English speaking design and construction firms doing business in Indonesia,” said IAPMO CEO Russ Chaney. “Understanding the provisions of this new code will no doubt be mutually beneficial to our industry wishing to market goods and services in Indonesia and the people who live, work, and travel within the nation.”
Based on the 2012 edition of IAPMO’s American National Standard Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC®), SNI 8153:2015 is tailored specifically to governance of plumbing systems within Indonesia for the protection of the health and safety of the nation’s citizens through the standardized delivery of water through properly installed and certified products.
