The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) has been protecting the public’s health and safety for more than 95 years by working in concert with government and industry to implement comprehensive plumbing and mechanical systems around the world.
IAPMO provides leadership toward addressing the global need for sound water efficiency-based codes and standards while working to avoid unintended consequences that have the potential to compromise health and safety. IAPMO supports science-based research and policy-based initiatives at all levels of government, with the goal of helping provide for the safe use of water in buildings around the world.
To encourage development, action and change for better health, IAPMO’s foundation, the International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation (IWSH) has a simple mission to continuously work to improve on the human condition by fostering the basic human right of safe access to clean water and sanitation. While their mission is simple, their methods are strategic and diverse. IWSH strives to align their efforts with those of government, industry and the communities where they work to ensure that the water systems are safe and sustainable.
