WALNUT, Calif. — The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and the Western Fire Chiefs Association (WFCA) announced that they have reached an agreement to work together in the publication of the year 2000 editions of the Uniform Fire, Plumbing, and Mechanical Codes.

Under the agreement, Uniform Fire Code 2000, Uniform Plumbing Code 2000, and Uniform Mechanical Code 2000 will contain cross references and code duplications that ensure consistency and ease of application of related provisions, the organizations said.

A Code Correlation Committee will provide cross representation of IAPMO at WFCA code deliberations, and of WFCA at IAPMO code deliberations.

The agreement also provides that IAPMO and WFCA, as well as the Mechanical Contractors Association of America and Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors — National Association, will jointly support and endorse the year 2000 editions of the codes.

The Uniform Fire Code has been published since 1961, the Uniform Plumbing Code since 1945, and the Uniform Mechanical Code since 1967.
